Kyoto Travel Guide

Enjoy Kyoto with COMPASS

Our goal is to give personalized service to every customer and to provide homely and welcoming atmosphere.
Let’s go sightseeing from your base camp, COMPASS!


How to Walk Around KYOTO

There is one of Kyoto’s must-see sightseeing model courses. Please refer to the following and make use of them. Of course, that is only one of many examples. If you need any requests such as “I want to interact with the locals” and “I want to know about Kyoto’s best-kept secret restaurants”, please do not hesitate to let us know.


Ask me anything about Kyoto!


【 DAY 1 】

On the first day of sightseeing in Kyoto (arrival date), why not enjoy delicious Kyoto-like food while enjoying sightseeing that can be done even a little later? While visiting Fushimi-Inari and Yasaka-Shrine, where there is no time to close the mine, if you are hungry, go to Gion for dinner. (There are also reasonable and delicious shops that Kyoto people go to.) After that, you can go to a bar or go to a public bath where locals gather to prepare for the next day. There is an izakaya where a master serves delicious obanzai, so be sure to visit that as well.



【 DAY 2 】

The second day of the trip, which has the most time. Why don’t you visit the highlights of this trip here? The point of sightseeing in Kyoto is to divide it into the west side and the east side. On the west side, Arashiyama, Kinkakuji, and Nijo Castle. On the east side, Kiyomizu Temple and Ginkakuji are major spots. Some customers get up early and go to Kiyomizu-dera, where there are no people, or go to Nishi Honganji’s morning work (6 o’clock * free) near the compass. Arashiyama also has a cycling course, so it is recommended to enjoy a slightly different trip!



【 DAY 3 】

On the final day, why don’t you try sightseeing in places that you couldn’t go around in the first or second day, or sightseeing with a focus on shopping? Nishiki Market and Kyoto Station are recommended for shopping. There are many nice retro cafes in Kyoto, so it might be a good idea to look back on your trip while drinking tea between sightseeing trips.

The compass has good access to Kyoto Station, so even if you leave your luggage, please enjoy the city of Kyoto!
