Description

Ride a retro rickshaw and step back in time in lovely Arashiyama! This private tour takes you around the best sites, filled with history and beauty. Rickshaws first appeared in Japan in the late 19th century, and have been a fun and relaxing way to see local sights. Unlike a car or bus, you stay close to the real Japan aboard one of these. In modern day Japan, the shafu (rickshaw drivers) provide warm and friendly hospitality, guiding you to hidden gems. Choose the private tour that fits your needs, from 12 to 120 minutes, and each driver will customize your time to best fit the season, weather and your interests. Climb aboard the luxurious rickshaws and move deftly through Arashiyama, home to the Sagano bamboo forest and Togetsukyo bridge.
