Itinerary

The following is a rough itinerary for your 7 day/6 night Reiki Pilgrimage Tour to Kyoto, Japan.  A full daily itinerary will be shared with all participants closer to the tour date, but the following will all likely be included and should give an idea of what you will experience during this tour:

  • Two trips to Mt. Kurama with both focusing on the practice, talks, Reiju, and historical perspectives on URR, led by Bruce Taylor, assisted by Hyakuten Inamoto.  We will hold Reiki talks, short trainings and attunements at Osugi Gongen – The very site of Usui Sensei’s enlightenment
  • Komyo Reiki-do group practice and Reiki Share with members of the Kyoto branch of Komyo Reiki-do
  • A three hour course on the practice and incorporation of Reiki Ryoho led by Hyakuten Inamoto 
  • A three hour course on non-attachment and non-duality within our Reiki Ryoho practice led by Bruce Taylor and assisted by Hyakuten Inamoto
  • A day trip to Mt. Hiei where we will dive into the historical context of Pure Land Buddhism and spirituality while linking it all back to Usui Reiki Ryoho led by Bruce Taylor
  • Time in and around Kyoto visiting the wealth of shrines, old parts of town, gardens, and onsens, and everything else that makes Kyoto such an amazing city. These are led/supervised by Bruce Taylor or you are free to explore on your own
  • To ensure a personal experience this tour is strictly limited to 30 participants 


    Please note the above is a rough itinerary only and is subject to change given the dynamic nature of the global tourism industry on account of Covid.  Every effort will be made to ensure that your time in Kyoto is maximized with regard to our focus of the pilgrimage

    A General Estimate On Prices In Kyoto:

    Visa Fee: (USA, Europe and most countries enter visa free, some countries may need to apply in advance, please check this list:

    General Transportation:
    Osaka-Kyoto bullet train ~$12 each way
    Subway ride in Kyoto ~$1-2 USD per trip (depends on distance travelled)
    Bus fare ~$1-2 USD per trip, based on distance
    Taxi in Kyoto ~$10-20 USD depending on distance

    Entrance to most shrines (Mt. Kurama, etc) ~$10 USD or less

    Dinner out at a mid-range restaurant ~$20-25 USD
    Budget restaurant dinner (still amazing food!) ~$8 USD

    Onsen (public bath) enterence fee ~$7-10 USD per person and usually good for an entire day

    So a rough estimate on all of the above might be around $50 USD/day for food, adminssion, transport and general expenses. Slightly more depending on the quality of restaurants and transport used.

    As a very rough estimate for the total trip cost you should budget between 5-6000 EUR (~ 5000-5900 USD)  which would be inclusive of all travel, personal expenses, and retreat costs,
