The Takayama Autumn Festival Tour – Small Group Tour of Japan – Day 8

Today – Kyoto! There is just so much to see in Kyoto, and on the Takayama Tour as with all tours we try to cover some of the must-sees and a few others less known as we walk around.

After arriving in Kyoto and dropping off the bags at the hotel we went straight to the famous World Heritage site of Kiyomizudera, the great stilted temple in the eastern mountains overlooking the city. From there we walked along Higashiyama to finish up in Gion to watch the traditional performing arts show. It’s a great route for people watching and shopping, and steeped in history, it’s a very busy area! As I write this and look through the photos I realize that the photos from the day are all of people photos, the sites were the backdrop.
