Timeless tradition; The Cultural Heart of Japan

Japan’s ancient capital city is the epicenter of tradition. Steeped in history and with a dash of the mysterious, Kyoto captivates and intrigues like nowhere else.

From the strikingly golden Kinkakuji to the contemplative Zen stone garden of the Nanzenji Temple, to the winding alleyways of Pontocho with its hidden eateries and watering holes, Kyoto, with its many World Heritage sites speaks to the mind, body and soul. Kyoto’s month-long Gion Matsuri festival is Japan’s biggest, while the pine covered Amanohashidate Sandbar, known as a pathway between heaven and earth, is one of Japan’s most breathtaking views. Home to some of the finest traditional cuisine Japan has to offer, Kyoto is also home to Japan’s rarefied geisha — although combining the two will take rather deep pockets.
