Kyoto Travel Guide

Kyoto is a city on the island of Honshu and was once the capital of Japan. The city is popular for its numerous classical Buddhist temples and gardens, as well as imperial palaces, Shinto shrines, and traditional wooden houses. There is also the famous formal tradition of kaiseki dining, which consists of multiple courses of traditional dishes, and the geisha female entertainers found in the Gion district.

Things to Do in Kyoto

The Philosopher’s Walk is a canal-side path lined with cherry and maple trees, which paint a beautiful picture when they bloom in the spring, and are right next to temples like Ginkaku-ji, with its pine-framed pond, and Nanzen-ji, with a renowned Zen garden.

The famous Hillside Kyomizu-dera Temple has a huge, log-supported veranda worth visiting, as well as Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine with its tunnel-like procession of hundreds of bright-orange “torii” gates in the forest. The shogun-era Nijō Castle has elaborate wood-carved interiors, while Kinkaku-ji, the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, is coated in gold leaves. To the west, Arashiyama's bamboo grove offers tranquil walks among the towering stalks.

Best Time to Visit Kyoto
