There is no hotel pick up included. You have to make you own way to Tokyo Station. Board the Nozomi bullet train to Kyoto.
Once, you reached Kyoto, you will proceed on visit to the attractions of this historic city and capital from 794-1868. On this trip, you will explore:
• Nijo Castle: "Nijo Castle" was built in 1603 as a luxurious fortified residence by the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Surrounded by massive walls and a moat, Nijo Castle is famed for its lavish painted screens from the Kano school and the “Nightingale” floor that “chirps” when you walk on it. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site now.
• Golden Pavilion: Golden Pavilion, also known as "Kinkakuji Temple", is perhaps the most well-known temple in Japan. The main pavilion is covered in gold leaf and shimmers in sunlight.
• Kyoto Imperial Palace: Kyoto Imperial Palace, which is also known as "Kyoto Gosho", is surrounded by beautiful entrance gates that are built in the traditional way. Each gate was used for different auspicious occasions and ceremonies. The palace also has perhaps the most beautiful and well-maintained park in the city, which is filled with groves of cherry and plum trees.
Here, you will have lunch (not included) at the Handicraft Centre. After having lunch you have leisure time.
In late evening, you will be transferred by bus to the Kyoto station from where you board the Nozomi bullet train to Tokyo.
After the memorable trip, the tour ends at Tokyo Station.
