HOSHINOYA Kyoto will offer a tour called “Koyo (autumn colors) Heli Cruise”

“HOSHINOYA Kyoto” will offer a tour called “Koyo Heli Cruise” where one can ride a helicopter and view Kyoto and its world heritages from the sky. One group per day can participate in this tour and it will be held from the 20th of November until the 5th of December, 2017.


From a height of 500m one can enjoy the view of Kyoto’s world heritages.


Every year, 56 million people visit Kyoto home to many shrines, temples and sightseeing spots. Approximately 12 million people visit Kyoto during the  autumn and therefore, transit and sightseeing spots are packed with tourists at this time of the year. To solve this problem, HOSHINOYA Kyoto is planning this tour so that tourists can enjoy the view of historical sites and beautiful views of Kyoto in autumn without having to worry about the crowds.


The tour will be offered only to customers who stay at one of HOSHINOYA Kyoto’s facilities. The tourists who participate this tour can enjoy the view of the trees colored red and orange and the world heritage sites while riding a helicopter. After the helicopter elevates up to 1500 feet (about 500m), one can enjoy the historical buildings of Kyoto such as Kiyomizudera, Kinkakuji and Nijojo and the fall colors of Arashiyama.
