Kinkaku-ji & Kinukake Tour with a Local Guide

Kinukake-no-michi (きぬかけの路), was opened in 1963 and first called Kanko-doro (Tourist’s road), however since 1991 it has been called Kinukake-no-michi or Draped silk road, chosen from a local contest.

This historic road, also known as “World Heritage Road”, runs approximately 2.5 km through the foothills of northwest Kyoto and links three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Kinkakuji (Temple of the Golden Pavilion), Ryoanji and Ninnaji.

It is an excellent area for walking and enjoying other temples and shrines, galleries and more.

Join us on this cultural journey around some of Kyoto’s distinct temples and visit the must-see sights in a day.

If you want to travel in comfort, we will arrange your own car and driver.
