About Kyoto

Situated on the Honshu island of the Kansai region, Kyoto is a magical city where the past and present come together as harmoniously as its natural and human environment. It has a rich historical and cultural heritage as seen in its ancient Buddhist and Shinto shrines and imperial palaces in the same space as it has beautiful gardens and thick forests. This interplay of human and natural elements gives Kyoto its unique landscape of temple roofs popping blending with treetops.

 

Kyoto is also known for entertainment. Kaiseki dining, often called the world's finest meal, is a comprehensive dinner of many courses that is still very popular here. Gion district is where you'd find Geishas -- or, since you're in Kyoto, Geikos -- women trained in the traditional arts. The city is associated with a lot of special dishes, each of which you can enjoy in its traditional teahouses and restaurants, all set amidst a sea of flowers and spectacular gardens.
