Kyoto

For those connected to calmness, beauty and serenity, Kyoto is a must.

Considered the traditional heart of Japan, the city once served as the capital, the city boasts numerous gardens, imperial palaces, classical Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.

Classic images of Japan can be found in the Gion district – streets of traditional wooden houses, century old tea rooms, pagodas, paving stones, cherry blossom trees and colourful geisha. Continuing with traditions, Kyoto is also home to formal practices such as kaiseki dining, consisting of multiple courses of precise dishes.

Look beyond the culture and you will find some of the best shopping precincts in Japan with department stores, markets and exciting alleyways of specialist shops.
