Absolutely loved the tour hosted by Lianka! Full of brilliant insights into the local culture and area, we spent the rest of our time in Kyoto following her tips! The tour was not overly strenuous but we covered a good distance.

Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto
is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with
its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the
neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a
self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of
the city, it is a district where you can take it at
your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving
and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many

There is not much else for your mother to do except walk to one of the nearby temples. It is a quiet neighborhood area. I don't know taxi cost. We went by train and walking. I would guess $10-15.

Hi! Kyoto is cold in the winter but we still run the tours! Our guests usually come prepared with gloves and a warm jacket. With best regards, Ross
