Today you will get some advice from cute shop clerks trying on some new clothes in the entire morning.

    Japan is a country with a lot of history, so you cannot miss the traditional side of the country. Therefore visiting the old capital for more than 1300 years is a must when you are in this country.
    You are scheduled to hop in a bullet train to make one day trip to Kyoto.
    There are thousands of buddhist and shinto temples there but we picked up some breath taking temples.

    The temple of pure water or Kiyomizu temple is one of the most popular among the thousands. The main pavilion boasts of the unique space which looks like Japanese opera stage where the sacred dance were offered to God. Pious follower of Budha used jump from that to prove their faith.



    Golden pavillion

    Golden pavilion or Kinkakuji temple stands gilded in gold, were set fire by a deranged monk in 1950.
    However it was restored after 5 years with donation of a lot of followers.
    The sight coupled with beautiful japanese garden and 600 year old bonsai tree blows your mind.
    Before leaving Kyoto, we can’t miss one place to visit…“Nijyou castle”. The shogun constructed this building when visiting Kyoto until 150 years ago. It’s also the place where the last shogun gave his political power back to the Emperor.

    On the way back to Tokyo, the tour offers you "Bento Dinner", a variety of food are neatly laid out in a box. In the bullet train to Tokyo, just relax, sit back and enjoy the Bento Dinner.
