THURSDAY 22 JUNE
Highlights – Golden Pavilion, Nagaeke Machiya, Display Homes visit
Today’s program will include a visit to Kyoto’s most historic architectural gem, the famous Kinkakuji Temple (known as the Golden Pavilion).
Afterwards we’ll include a private tour of Nagaeke Machiya (townhouse) in central Kyoto, one that belonged to a well off merchant family and is not normally open to the public.
From here continue to see some free standing “show/display homes” giving you a fascinating insight to what middle class Japanese aspire to build and own on their own block of land.
Evening – Farewell Dinner
We’ll be taking you to a very special dinner venue to conclude your Japan tour on a high note.
