isitors to Kyoto will find themselves awed by the quiet temples, beautiful gardens and colorful shrines of this ancient city, once the capital of Japan and the seat of the Emperor. Kyoto is home to more than 1,000 Buddhist temples, perfectly preserved through the centuries and offset with lush landscaped gardens, bursting with Japan’s famed cherry blossoms. Any visit to Kyoto should include a stop to marvel at the golden splendor of Kinkaku-ji, the Golden Pavilion, as well as the cavernous Higashi Hongan-ji. Kyoto’s splendid religious architecture extends to its Shintō shrines, including the famous Fushimi-Inari-taisha with its bright vermillion torii (gates), which preserve the nation’s indigenous faith. But the culture of Kyoto extends beyond religious architecture and artifacts. When you travel to Kyoto, you’ll also sample some of the world’s best cuisine, from the artistic multi-course feast that is kaiseki to more common fare like ramen noodles and expertly prepared tempura. Our Kyoto travel guide will point you to some of the most popular destinations in this ancient and history-rich city.
