“Countless temples, cherry blossom-lined canals and tranquil Zen gardens – Kyoto is the embodiment of ancient Japan.”
Situated in central Honshu, Kyoto is the former Imperial Capital of Japan, a title it held for more than one thousand years.
The handsome city sits within the Yamashina Basin, in the eastern part of the mountainous Tamba Highlands. The basin is surrounded by mountains on three sides, adding to Kyoto’s physical beauty as it appears to be nestling in the valley, surrounded by its protective hillsides. Trees, rivers and lakes are all a part of the wonderful natural scenery in and around the city, creating a postcard-like setting.
