If you are up for a little more of a workout, our North Course starts at Honganji Temple and hits Kitano Tenmangu Shrine before arriving at Kyoto’s 2nd most visited attraction, the stunning Golden Pavilion. After walking the grounds of the temple, we head for the Imperial Palace and lunch, before following the gentle downhill path towards Gion. In Gion where we will weave through the backstreets and learn about the area’s background until crossing over the Kamo river and heading home.
