Our tips for Kyoto

  • All about that paper. When nature calls, you probably won’t find one of those self-cleaning toilets with the heated seats. And, it’s rare to see toilet paper during a Kyoto trip. So, roll your own!
  • Soya Sorry! Pouring soy sauce directly onto your rice might be the quickest way to offend Japanese sensibilities. While on vacation in Kyoto, try dipping your rice into a dish of soy sauce, instead.
  • Shhh! It’s frowned upon to talk on your phone while using mass transit or in other crowded locations. In many places, it’s against the law. But, feel free to play games or browse the internet while you’re getting around during your Kyoto tour.

Good to know

Weather-wise, consider booking your Kyoto sightseeing tour for March, April, October, or November. Japan’s world-renowned cherry blossom trees usually bloom in March or April. You’ll experience clear skies and encounter very little rain. Fall can be chilly during the evenings; but, temperatures are usually pretty mild. You can watch the leaves change colors and tour Kyoto without seeing a single raindrop. Summer is peak tourist season; so, you’ll encounter quite a bit of extra traffic in Kyoto. The intense heat and high humidity can create issues for those accustomed to a dry climate.
