Curated Higashiyama

The Higashiyama area in Kyoto is famous for the Kiyomizu temple and the Gion streets, but there’s actually so much more to Higashiyama. Higashiyama is filled with beautiful and interesting temples and shrines, stylish local shops, and places where you can get the best coffee and sweets. The Curated Higashiyama Tour will kick off at Hanamikoji street and take you to Higashiayama’s hidden shrines, the beautiful Kodai-ji Temple (one of my favorite temples) and cute little shops loved by locals. This is a walking tour so please wear comfortable footwear!
