Full description
Explore the glorious city of Kyoto. Led by an authentic Samurai guide, Joe Okada knows the city as well as he knows his own swordsmanship!

Kyoto was the 2nd capital of Japan from 794-1868, with a legacy of 72 Emperors and 3 Shoguns. The site still retains much of its history among more modern developments. The tour starts at the Kyoto City Hall Plaza, from there visiting a variety of traditional arts and crafts shops, including a wood engraver, a brush and ink maker, and fine tea shops.

Visit a Buddhist temple and Shinto shrine. Continue onward to a typical Japanese market to sample the produce and enjoy a lunch. Afterwards Samurai Joe will demonstrate his skills, and he'll need a volunteer to help!
