Kyoto is a japanese city located in the Kinki area.
According to history, the emperor moved the capital from Nara to Kyoto in 794.
Kyoto has many ancient buildings and a cultural heritage such as the Imperial Palace of Kyoto.
Some of the streets were also registered as World Heritage Sites(!).
There are many historic buildings such as Fushimi-Inari-taisha Shrine’s Red Torii, the large stage of Kiyomizu-dera Temple and the Bamboo Road of Arashiyama Mountain.
Many people imagine the landscape of Kyoto as the main image of Japan.
Besides these structures, traditional handicrafts, traditional dances and such things as Japanese cuisine and sweets can be enjoyed here.
Kyoto is the best destination for those who want to enjoy the traditional culture of Japan and its museums like the Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts or the Tondaya Nishijin Textile Lifestyle Gallery.
We recommend coming here in the fall, if you want to enjoy the view of the autumn leaves, or in summer, when the Gion Matsuri Festival is held.
Recommended places to see the autumn leaves are places like the Jojakuko-ji Temple, the Nison-in Temple and the Renge-ji Temple.
The Gion Matsuri Festival is one of the three biggest Matsuri festivals in Japan and it is a festival that has been held here for 1000 years.
The entire festival is about a month long and during this period a variety of festivals are held throughout Kyoto.
In addition, winter in Kyoto is very cold and it is snowing, so please check the weather in advance and dress accordingly.
