The tour basically enters the Fushimi Inari shrine area from the back, meaning the crowds are pretty thin at first and you have a moment there to yourself. But first we paused at a bamboo grove that was otherwise empty of visitors. The path through the shrine itself was inspiring and scenic. Our guide Suzy explained the significance of statuary, rituals and other significant sights along the way. We stopped for some coffee and a hardboiled egg each, served beneath a canopy along the stone-paved trail and tucked next to shrines. It was a fun experience made better by our knowledgeable and patient guide.
Loved using these bikes, felt very calming cycling around the streets of Japan, tour guide was friendly, positive, informative - really good energy and up for a laugh! Saw some cool things I wouldn't have known to go see, in a short amount of time, and without any hassle of trying to find them. Learnt a lot of cool things about Japanese culture!
Warm, friendly, informative guide. Beautiful walk through woods, bamboo forest, and small shrines leading up to Fushimi Inari Shrine. Great way to see the area without entering with the masses of new year's visitors from the front entrance. Thank you.
The tour up the other side was great even after a rainy day. There was hardly any visitors to the shrine at the first part which was great. The whole experience was well informed and great hidden scenery for all selfie takers.
Excellent! Yuya is the ultimate guide. Knowledgeable, informative and very friendly.
