There are many fun things to do in Kyoto. You can choose to see historic castles, temples and shrines or simply go to a market and catch a cooking class. Kyoto Cooking Class, Sake Tasting and Nishiki Food Market Walking Tour includes a visit to a traditional 'machiya' wooden townhouse for a Japanese cooking class. You will prepare your own Japanese dinner like rolled sushi, miso soup and cooked salad with seasonal fruit for dessert. A visit to the Shimogamo Shrine is also a fun way to spend the afternoon. The place is the site of the annual May 15 "Aoi Matsuri" festival. Participants, garbed in traditional yabusame horseback archery gear, take part in the historical parade. Kyoto is known for its picturesque gardens and the Kyoto Prefectural Botannical Gardens is a treasure trove of greenery that contains over 12,000 plants and trees from 1,200 different species. The gardens are an ideal way to see Kyoto's changing seasons. A vacation in Kyoto combines rich history with endless sight-seeing adventures. No wonder tourists just can't get enough of this beautiful garden city.
