Many travellers are drawn to the Gion district for its traditional geisha culture and majestic cherry blossom views in the spring. The Arashiyama area is also popular as it offers a tranquil and natural setting with soaring bamboo forests and temples.

To fully enjoy your holiday in Kyoto, be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes, a camera or phone to capture all the beautiful sights, and a small bag or backpack to carry souvenirs and/or snacks. Lightweight and breathable clothing as well as a small umbrella or rain jacket are also recommended.
