Overview :

1. Enjoy the clean air and beauty of nature at a countryside area away from the city!
2. On this plan, visit Ohara which is in a countryside that takes more than 1 hour by bus from Kyoto Station.
The countryside scenery that retains unchanged nature from long ago actually features a number of temples with upwards of 1,000 years of history.
The area is packed with anecdotes distinct to Kyoto, including a tale of a woman that fled the war-torn Kyoto and became a Buddhist priest; ceiling boards that retain blood stains from samurai that committed suicide during times of war; Pure Land Buddhist temples that depict the Pure Land; and more.
What will modern people like you feel at such a place that is packed with the thoughts and feelings of people long ago?
At the temple, leisurely gaze out at the garden as you reflect on your own heart, all while enjoying some matcha green tea.
While Ohara's Sanzen-in Temple is located in one of Kyoto's most famous sightseeing areas, when you actually go there, you'll find that unlike within the city its atmosphere is serene, so you will surely be able to refresh yourself.
This plan is recommended for those that want to calm their soul.
3. During the seasons for cherry blossoms (early April), hydrangeas (June), and colored autumn leaves (mid-November to mid-December) you can enjoy a particularly lovely scenery.
There is a garden that was used in a famous commercial introducing Kyoto. If you want to enjoy a relaxed time in Kyoto, Ohara is the place for you.
4. This is a private tour that can be booked for 1 to 6 people.
Customers can have an enjoyable tour with people they know at their own pace.
