With a staggering number of ancient Buddhist temples, impeccable gardens and majestic palaces, Kyoto is Japan's most culturally rich city. Home to no less than 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites and some 400 Shinto shrines dedicated to Japan's indigenous faith, Kyoto houses the country's most important works of art. It's also an evocative portrait of old Japan, having served as the capital for more than a thousand years, with traditional wooden houses lining neatly paved streets and geisha practising traditions handed down generations. See for yourself all that Kyoto has to offer with our day tours and activities ready to book online today.Read More
