Description

Slip back in time and experience a unique Kyoto rickshaw tour near Kodaiji Temple! This private ride will allow you to enjoy a perfect day in the ancient capitol. 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 Kodaiji temple, known for its beautiful 'maki-e' (lacquer work incorporating silver and gold).
