Curated Kyoto

Like an art curator finds and selects the right pieces to create a memorable exhibition, selecting the Curated Kyoto tour ensures you get an itinerary that has been filtered and curated to fit your needs. Kyoto has over 2,000 temples and shrines, a booming urban culture with lots of great food, stylish shops, and charming coffee shops in every corner of the city. Let me introduce you to this Kyoto.
