Highlights of East Kyoto by train, Zen, Tea, Sake

Experience the highlights in eastern Kyoto by train and on short walks and get an expert with M.A. Introduce studies in Kyoto's history and culture in Japan. This mode of transport gives you the opportunity to experience Kyoto's most famous sights while feeling the pulse of the locals' lives. We visit several places in Kyoto where traditional culture has existed for centuries: Uji, which is associated with green tea in Japan, and Fushimi, a traditional center for brewing sake. Between the two districts is the Manpuku-ji Temple, the main temple of the Obaku Zen School, which has retained a distinctive Chinese appearance. The area of traditional sake breweries and warehouses in Fushimi has served as a backdrop in many films. The final walk through the Geisha district of Gion and Kyoto's old town completes this tour.
