Kyoto was once Japan’s capital for over a millennium, was also the Imperial Family’s residence from 794 to 1868. Due to its historic value, the city was spared from the air raids and atomic bomb during World War II. It is now Japan’s seventh largest city with a population of 1.4 million people, and with an intricate blend of modernism and traditions. Kyoto is home to numerous UNESCO’s World Heritage sites, and in addition to these heritage sites, there are more than 1600 Buddhist temples and over 400 Shinto shrines in this city. Sanjusangendo temple houses a collection of 1,001 statues of Kannon, and the Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine is lined with 10,000 vivid red tori gates on the trails up the sacred Mount Inari, these are just a few spots that will linger in your memory forever. Visitors to Kyoto will soon discover its hidden beauty in the temples and gardens surrounding the city center, and find that the city has much more to offer than immediately meets the eye.
