5 Free Guide Services in Kyoto

Kyoto is one of Japan’s best cities to visit, but with all the great shrines and temples it can be a bit confusing. Which ones are best? How do you find out about the histories and beliefs behind them? There are so many ways in which a volunteer travel guide can help!

1. Sakura Volunteer Guide Club

This well-respected club for volunteer guides can take you to major sites and tourist attractions, with different plans available. One nice thing about this club is that for events, such as festivals, they also organize special get-togethers for a small fee.

2. Good Samaritan Club

Another popular service, the members are local university students hoping to meet foreigners and show them around. These are usually one-day tours.

3. Visit Kansai

For those visiting places such as Osaka, Kyoto or Nara, Visit Kansai is a great choice. They have loads of bubbly volunteer guides who want to give tourists a real behind-the-scenes experience.
