Imagine: you are sitting on the tatami mat, your mind at peace, inside a 300 years old temple in Kyoto. The air is filled with the fragrance of religious incense burning nearby. You are so peaceful that you can hear the distant sound of a gong announcing the coming ceremony. You can not hope for a more memorable experience of Japan’s Zen buddhism. Or, can you? All of a sudden, the serene atmosphere is disrupted by the stampede of a horde of loud tourists armed with selfie sticks. Unfortunately, this happens much too often what to those who come visit Kyoto and follow the ‘places-you-must-go-to’ list found in their guidebook. Surely you don’t want your very own zen experience to be ruined like that! Here is our solution: we want to show you Kyoto’s pristine and lesser known zen gardens that are preserved from mass-tourism. We invite you to explore with us the remaining peaceful temples spared from the crowds. We will go around the Nanzen-ji temple complex area where we will visit our selected temples and, after we explain their history, we give you time to enjoy the ambient harmonious peace.
Pierre & Axel
Hey, I am Pierre from France !! I have been living in Kyoto since 2012 and I now want to share with you my passion for my new hometown. I will take you to the most beautiful gardens that only local people know about. I became a huge history buff since graduating Japanese civilisation studies at Waseda University in Tokyo. I also guide travelers all over Japan for work. I can definitely help you understand better Japanese esthetics. My hobbies are photography, watching movies and eating food. If you are a ramen lover like me, I can share with you my favorite noodle shop in Kyoto.
