After enjoying your breakfast you'll embark on a day of sightseeing. Kyoto is a fascinating place where the big city lives hand in hand with its traditional past.
Firstly you'll visit Kinkakuji temple which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Japan. This temple is covered in gold and has previously burned down multiple times, repeatedly being restored to its former glory every time. The surroundings add to the natural beauty of this structure - overlooking the lake this is definitely a place to get a few pictures!
From here you'll make your way to the Ryoanji temple where you'll find the famous Zen rock garden. The exact date the garden was created, as well as its purpose, is unknown and has puzzled people for generations. However, it is interesting to note that, when looking at the stone structures, at least one rock is always hidden no matter where you stand. You'll also take in the UNESCO world heritage site of the Tenryuji temple which is said to have the oldest gardens in the whole of Kyoto, dating as far back as the 14th century.
