Day 6 - Nagoya > Kyoto (97km)

Kyoto, once the capital of Japan is a city on the island of Honshu. Famous for its classical Buddhist temples as well as gardens & imperial palaces. It's also known for formal traditions such as Kaiseki dining consisting of precise dishes and geisha, female entertainers often found in the Gion district.

1) Fushimi Inari Shrine - It is particularly photogenic and famous because the shrine grounds are home to thousands of Senbon Torii (thousand gates), which frame the trails that lead a 4 km stretch up to Mt Inari


2) Kyoto tofu + Udon noodle set lunch



3)  Arashiyama - located in the western outskirts of Kyoto, it has been a popular tourist destination since the Heian Period for its natural setting


4) Monument commemorating Chinese Premier Zhou En Lai's Poem


5) Bamboo Forest - the path is set between Tenryuji Temple and Nonomiya Shrine for over 500 meters long. It is absolute beautiful when the sun barely peaks through the bright green bamboo leaves and the stalks swinging in the wind


6) Souvenirs shops & Food stalls near Arashiyama, Kyoto
