    The shinkansen to Kyoto

Kyoto is merely 280 miles away and, thanks to the speed and efficiency of the shinkansen (bullet-trains) is just about possible to discover on a day trip from Tokyo. This organised tour will pick you up from your hotel in Tokyo, transport you across to Kyoto on the Nozomi Express, where you head out on the coach after lunch to explore several of the main sights -  Heian Jingu Shrine, Sanjusangen-do Temple & Kiyomizu-dera Temple - before getting you back to Tokyo for 10pm - where you are dropped back at your hotel. Your guide will not join you  on the train, but you are accompanied for the remainder of the day.
