I have organised an itinerary through a private shore excursion company called Novaland tours for the 13th of September to see Kyoto City.
The tour includes pick up and drop off at Maizuru port from our wharf at 7:30am - 4:30pm return.
Its a 1.5hr drive to Kyoto City (quicker than bus or train) which gives us about 5.5hrs in Kyoto City to see the sites.
The sites I have included in the tour is the Arashiyama Bamboo Forrest, Fushimi Inari Shrine (Red torii gates) and the Kinkaku-ji Temple (Golden Pavilion) as well as a stop for lunch recommended by the guide.
Tour includes entrance fees and an english speaking tour guide and driver however it doesnt cover the costs of your lunch meal.
The vehicle can take 6 passengers so I am looking for 4 more people to join Mum and I for this tour, which then will work out to be $160 USD each.
If your interested please get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this post.
Look forward to hearing from you!
