Take a stroll through two major World Heritage sites of Kyoto in the afternoon. Examine the simple, yet elegant structure of the pebble garden swept neatly to create patterns at Ryoanji Temple. Then explore the quiet sand garden of Ginkakuji along with the famous representation of Mt. Fuji made of sand. Learn about the relationship between gardens and Zen Buddhism through your tour.
This tour is held in Japanese, but to enhance your exploration, the vehicles are also equipped with personal handheld audio GPS systems that will provide narration (available in English, Chinese, and Korean) about the various sights you will see along the way.
