Copy the trip we took on Odigo!
Kyoto is the number one travel destination in Japan, and because there are SO. MANY. things to see there it can be hard to figure out where to go. These are our three recommendations for first-time visitors: Kiyomizu-dera, Arashiyama (which is also where Tenryu-ji is), and Gion and the nearby street Shijo Dori + Yasaka shrine. Fushimi Inari Taisha is probably one of the more famous areas, but for us it was SO crowded that it was difficult to even get around. It kind of just made me feel sad because you could tell how incredibly beautiful and almost magical it would have been hundreds of years ago, but with the crowds today it was just about impossible to enjoy it. That’s just my opinion, though, and many people love it anyway!
Kiyomizu-dera, Arashiyama, and the Gion general area are all extremely crowded, too (of course), but to me they were worth it despite that. And that’s saying something because I can’t stand crowded tourist spots!!
We also met the amazing singer Reika (of the group Juuichi) on Shijo Dori, and they very graciously allowed us to use their music!!
