What Is Kyoto, Japan Known For?
Once the historical capital of Japan, Kyoto is a standing monument to the bygone eras. The atmospheric spirit of Old Japan weaves itself throughout every imposing temple, impeccable garden, and traditional teahouse that populate this scenic city. Amongst the Shinto shrines and scurrying geishas, visitors can also find the typical hallmarks of international tourist activity within chic cocktail bars, elegant cafes, and Michelin-star eateries. However, despite the rest of Japan shaping its cities in the ways of progressive modernity with reckless abandon, Kyoto pays homage to the times gone by. The cultural capital of the country, Kyoto is the perfect place to witness the old ways of Japan like nowhere else.
