Took a tour from the ship to see the UNESCO site of the yellow temple. Couldn’t get inside. Walked through the forest on a dirt cobblestone path. Nothing to see here, move along. We then went to another UNESCO site of a lord samurai. Big deal! Square brown house with some imitation painted silk screens. There are signs along the path through the house that explained what went on in each of the rooms, but it was extremely crowded. I got pushed aside a lot by rude people who wanted to read the sign. (I’m only 5’ tall, they should have been able to see around me). It may have been interesting, but we were rushed. I’d say skip this tour. For $179 you can see more and do more on your own.
