Welcome to Kyoto

Kyoto is the spiritual home of Japan with beautiful temples, ancient tea ceremonies, imperial palaces, mysterious geisha, exquisite Japanese cuisine and is the home of the traditional Japanese garden.

Founded as the capital of Japan in the year 794 (until 1868) it is now Japan's 7th largest city with a population of over 1.4 million people.

Kyoto brilliantly blends the old and the new of Japan to give you the unique experience of urban life versus the time honoured traditions of ancient Japan. This makes this city a must to explore and experience.

Kyoto is home to approximately 3,300 Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, including 17 World Heritage sites. Highlights include the stunning Golden Pavilion at Kinkaku-ji Temple, and the impressive wooden terrace that sits 13m above the hillside at Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Other favourites are the Fushimi Inari Shrine, the Nijo Castle and wonders of the Nishiki Markets.

The steady stream of sights and sounds will dazzle you as you travel through this amazing city with street stalls and cuisine that give you a truly unique Kyoto experience.
