Participating is easy! Download Zoom on your device (smartphone, PC, etc.) in advance, and once it is time to start, click on the designated URL, and enjoy the tour online.
2. This virtual tour is led by a National Government Licensed English Guide Interpreter in real time. In order to make it so that participating customers feel as if they are strolling around, you will be shown pre-recorded tour footage while a knowledgeable National Government Licensed English Guide Interpreter with a hospitable heart provides explanations for sightseeing spots and Japanese culture. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to mention them to the guide right then and there!
3. On this virtual tour, more than half of the destinations comprise areas that are normally not open to the public. Participating customers can look forward to enjoying the fascinating, little-known secrets of Kyoto.
At Konkai Komyo-ji Temple, enjoy seeing the sights from different angles, such as from atop the Sanmon Gate, in a formal chamber, in a sacred hall, a garden, and even a light-up display. Then in the comfort of your own home, experience what it's like to copy a sutra actually used at Konkai Komyo-ji Temple.
See how artisans create beautiful Japanese sweets at the long-established confectionery shop Shichijo Kanshundo, and watch a tea ceremony at Shoden Sanso in Uji. Get in touch with Japanese architecture and gardens at Shoden Sanso, built on the remnants of a nobles' villa from 900 years ago.
There is plenty to enjoy for everyone, whether first-timers or those who want to dive deeper into Japanese culture.
