What you can expect
On this short tour discover the significant shrine of Fushimi Inari Shrine and visit a sake brewery to learn the history of making sake and sample the popular fermented alcoholic drink. With your own private guide, these spectacular attractions make your time in Kyoto a memorable experience.
Meet your tour guide at Kyoto Central Post Office and take a train to Fushimi Inari Shrine, an important Shinto shrine dedicated to the god of rice located in southern Kyoto. On a leisurely walk around the beautiful shrine, admire its thousands of vermilion torii gates which connect a grid of trails behind the main building.
Next take a train to Kyoto's renowned sake brewery, Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum, and learn about Japan's popular sake—rice wine widely consumed during celebrations and traditional rituals—as well as its intricate brewing process. The secrets to producing top-quality sake depend on the caliber of rice, water, and favorable weather conditions. Taste some locally brewed sake before a ride back to Kyoto station.
