The Arashiyama rickshaw tour begins at Togetsukyo Bridge, one of Arashiyama's most recognizable landmarks. Snap photos of the wooden bridge and the peaceful Katsura River. Then hop on a traditional Japanese rickshaw and enjoy an extensive tour of historic Arashiyama.
The expert driver will pull the rickshaw around the main highlights of the area as well as some hidden gems. The rickshaw is the perfect way to see Arashiyama, covering more ground than a walking tour but still slow enough to enjoy the sights and sounds of this charming town.
Weave in and out of local neighbourhoods, getting a closer look at the machiya, or traditional Japanese houses. Pass by Nonomiya Shrine which served as the setting of The Tale of Genji, a book commonly referred to as the world's first novel.
Upon reaching the end of the tour, return to Togetsukyo Bridge, bidding farewell to the rickshaw driver and returning to central Kyoto.
