The ancient city of Kyoto was the capital of Imperial Japan for over a thousand years, and is still one of the most important cities in the country. Where the rest of the Japanese urban landscapes have become incredibly modernized, Kyoto remains true to its heritage, and remains is a sightseeing traveler’s delight, with ancient shrines, a unique culture, and beautiful views.
