Exo TravelStart (guided tour): 09:00 Duration: 8 h *including pick-up/drop-off and transit times

Today's guided tour features some of the most iconic sights of Japan's cultural capital - Kyoto.

The first stop is Sanjusangendo Temple. Sanjusangendo is best known for its 1,001 statues of the goddess of mercy, Kannon. The name of the temple directly translates to “33 intervals,” which denotes the number of spaces between the temple’s pillars.

Just beyond Sanjusangendo is the atmospheric Higashiyama District, where busy lanes are filled with quaint shops selling souvenirs such as Kiyomizu-yaki ceramics, traditional Japanese sweets, and pickles. Stroll along and enjoy the local ambience of the area.

Next, head to Heian Shrine, which is home to one of Japan’s largest torii gates. The highlight of this shrine is definitely its gardens, collectively called Shin-en. Naka Shin-en, one of the four gardens, was featured in the movie ‘Lost in Translation.’ The stone steps that Scarlett Johansson can be seen stepping on are called garyu-kyo, and serve as a walkway through the serene Soryu Pond.

Continue the adventure by following the Philospher’s Path. Also known as the Tetsugaku-no-michi, it is a popular spot for backstreet tours, is lined with cherry blossom trees on both sides and follows a tranquil canal. A couple of cafés and local shops can be found along this 2-kilometre path, and several of Kyoto’s popular shrines and temples are also located nearby.

The final sightseeing spot today is Ginkaku-ji Temple, otherwise known as The Silver Pavilion. This elegant Zen temple is set in beautiful grounds at the foot of Kyoto's eastern mountains. Originally built as a retirement villa for shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa in the 15th century, its grounds are an outstanding example of Japanese landscape architecture. A beautiful moss garden and unique dry sand garden can be enjoyed through a leisurely stoll along a circular route around the grounds. Lovely views of the temple grounds and Kyoto City can be had from the hill within the temple complex.

Note: Kiyomizu-dera is currently undergoing renovations, with proposed completion in 2020.

DAY 13 - Naoshima – OsakaMealsMEALS [B]

Exo TravelUno Station to Shin-Osaka Station: 2 h

Today is a self-guided day.

This morning, travel back to the mainland by ferry. Before heading to Osaka, we recommend to travel to Kurashiki to visit its old merchant’s district of Bikan or, Okayama, the city well-known for the so-called Crow Castle.

Suggested Self-Guided Itinerary:

Head first to the nostalgic Kurashiki Bikan and Canal Area filled with traditional houses and shops with sliding doors and lattice windows.

If time permits, pay a visit to the Ohara Museum of Art, the first and oldest Western art museum in Japan. On display are the works of some of the most well-known artists in the world such as El Greco, Matisse, and Picasso.

Visit Okayama Castle, also known as the “Crow Castle” for its black exterior. Although completed in the late 1500s, the structure that we see today only dates back to 1966 because of countless renovations caused by fires.

Next head to Korakuen Garden, hailed as one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan and a designated Special Place of Scenic Beauty. The only way to get to the garden from Okayama Castle is via Tsukimi Bashi Bridge, a steel and concrete bridge that crosses over Asahi River.

In the afternoon, travel back to Kansai for a night in Osaka, Japan’s culinary capital. Osaka’s flamboyance, fun-loving people, and amazing food make up for what it lacks in tourist attractions.

Suggested Self-Guide Itinerary:

In Osaka, the following places are recommended:

Dotonbori

Dotonbori is a restaurant mecca which has long-been referred to as Osaka’s entertainment district. It is well-known for its bright neon lights, energetic shop owners and food stalls that are filled with some local Osakan delights such as takoyaki (octopus balls) and fugu (poisonous puffer fish).

Umeda

Umeda is where most of the city’s most modern buildings are found. Some of the notable buildings are HEP (Hankyu Entertainment Park), which features a big Ferris wheel and is perfect for some last-minute shopping; Kitashinchi District, housing some of the city’s culinary specialties; and the Umeda Sky Building, a pair of skyscrapers connected in “mid-air”, built in an unusual architectural form rarely seen anywhere in the world. Feel the fresh air and enjoy 360-degree panoramic views at the ‘Floating Garden Observatory’.

Optional Tour: Flavours of Osaka

Today’s tour begins at 16:45. Osaka is an epicurean’s delight. Indeed, the motto that the city’s exuberant inhabitants live by is kuiadore – “to eat oneself bankrupt.” 

The first stop will be at a street food stall to get a taste of some traditional Japanese snack food, menchi katsu. Menchi katsu is a breaded and deep-fried patty made of ground meat. Golden and crisp, this is a local favourite.

Next, head to a standing bar to enjoy the ambience and taste a selection of sake and Japanese wine, along with delicious house specialities. Then, head to a restaurant specialising in wagyu beef dishes. Often referred to as the most expensive beef in the world, wagyu beef is of a superb quality, and is on many a gourmet’s wish list. Enjoy the melt-in-the-mouth textures with a refreshing cocktail.

The final stop will be to try a new style of tempura in an eatery tucked away in a small alleyway. Old favourites such as shrimp tempura, and more experimental combinations such as asparagus tempura and cheese can be found on the menu.

Bid farewell to the affable guide, and either return to the hotel or go for a stroll around the neighbourhood to take in the sights (D).

Time:
