Point of the Plan by Recommender

Jun
This is my recommend Kyoto trip plan if I were a foreign traveler!

1.Satisfies the historical & cultural curiosity

・Want travelers to feel excitement by imagining the historical events & cultural backgrounds which each site holds by reading this website.

2.Doesn't get bored by going to same kind of places successively

・Even though the places are famous, going to same kind of places continuously would make travelers bored. In short, I tried to mix different kind of places in a day.

3.Refreshing trip

・I've tried to make the plan from the point of view of not putting too much schedule in a day. The trip would be happy when we feel refreshing and not getting too tired.
