and more.

How many tourists visit from overseas and stayed in Kyoto in 2018, you think?

About 1.2 million tourists stayed in Kyoto as least one night. Especially, from the end of March to Apil and from November to early December, the number of tourists hit the peak.

It means that the number of couples who choose Kyoto as their elopement wedding is increasing!

For couples, their honeymoon and elopement/destination wedding in Kyoto is considered as one set, and Kyoto is one of the best places to elope!

However, Kyoto prefecture is huge, and Kyoto city is just a part of it.

There are many hidden jams in Kyoto prefecture, and they are also great places to elope. I would like to recommend!

You can see how Kyoto prefecture is the big area below.

Kyoto by the Sea ( from Kyoto station, it takes about 2-3 hours by train, car or bus)

This area is located along the Sea of Japan and seafood are so fresh! Also, all vegetables and fruits are so fresh and delicious! Furthermore, there are Onsen Ryokan ( hotels with hot springs) sake factories, kimono fabric woven factory, some more historical buildings and places with exceptional nature!

If you elope there, you can enjoy the following scenes ( It is a sample plan)
