Osaka, Nara, Himeji and Kobe are all very easily reachable from Kyoto using the fast, efficient railways. See Japan’s grandest castle (you may recognize it from movies you’ve seen before), make friends with the deer in Nara Park, or join us for an epic food trip in Osaka’s Dotonbori and Kuromon Market. You’ll make your own shokuhin sampuru, the incredibly lifelike food replicas used by Japanese restaurants, see some of Japan’s oldest Buddhist temples, and take in the evening lights along Kobe Bay, considered one of the world’s most beautiful city skylines. Please scroll down for the tours.
