Traveling to Kyoto?
Exploring Golden Pavillion Kinkakuji and Siver Pavillion Ginkakuji.
Admiring Arashiyama bamboo forest grove and Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine?

We all know that great photos need great captions.

Whatever you do, there will be photos you will want to share on Instagram too. Here is a collection of the best Kyoto Instagram captions to save you the trouble of thinking about one yourself and inspire your imagination. There are Kyoto puns and Kyoto travel quotes that you can copy and paste right under your Instagram photo from the cultural capital of Japan, Kyoto.

You will find Fushimi Inari captions and the ones you can use when visiting Arashiyama bamboo grove, Golden Temple captions, and Instagram captions when walking on the streets of Gion when searching for Geisha and Maiko. 

If you visit Kyoto for a day, 4-days, or stay here for a week, you are guaranteed to have hundreds of stunning photos. They might be from Kinkakuji, Arashiyama, Gion and southern Higashiyama, Fushimi Inari Taisha, or one of Kyoto’s other temples, shrines, and castles (Kiyomizu-Dera Temple, Sanjusangendo Temple, Nijo Castle).

Perhaps you will visit Kyoto tower, or rent a Kimono. You may even be more adventurous and join one of the Kyoto food tours to learn more about Japan’s cultural capital through food tastings and drinks. Or maybe you will just try something more extreme and sign up for a Samurai class?

Disclosure (being transparent and honest should be fun): You know the way I run this blog. I only recommend products, experiences, hotels, etc. that I personally tried and actually own and use. And some that I am positive will be helpful for you. On this site, you will see pretty colorful links which are known as ”affiliate links”. If you click on this link and buy something you like, I’ll earn some money. I’m talking huge bucks here, like a new Tesla, yacht, and 7-bedroom mansion. Ok, honestly, most of the time it will be enough to help me buy treats for my dog and parrot, eco-friendly travel products or to help me build the time machine, and travel back in time to see the dinosaurs, do an interview of stone crafters on Easter island and have a serious chat with masterminds who ‘invented’ Maths. Thank you! Read more in Disclaimer.
