The imperial capital of Japan for 1,200 years, Kyoto is Japan’s cultural keeper from kimono-clad maiko to temple festivals.

Over one thousand temples and shrines reside in the magical city of Kyoto on the island of Honshu. In this capital city of the Kyoto Prefecture, respect for tradition is evident in daily life. Refined Kaiseki restaurants, picturesque tea houses, and ancient art forms are as relevant today as they were thousands of years ago.
