Description

Step back in time and experience a unique Kyoto rickshaw tour, starting at Ginkakuji! This private tour will allow you to customize the perfect day. The word rickshaw originates from the Japanese word “jinrikisha”, which means “human-powered vehicle”. They first appeared in Japan in the late 19th century. In modern day Japan, Ebisuya's “shafu” (rickshaw drivers) provide “omotenashi,” a distinctly Japanese form of hospitality. Choose the private tour that fits your needs, from 12 to 120 minutes, which each driver will customize to best fit the season, weather and your interests. Climb aboard the luxurious rickshaws and move deftly through the area around Ginkakuji temple, known as the "Silver Pavilion".
