Kyoto combines every mystifying thing about Japan into one: zen temples, culinary mastery, unique natural landscapes, accommodating locals…These are all qualities that highlight different regions and cities in Japan, yet Kyoto somehow marries them all together!
While magical bamboo forests and an abundance of wildlife decorate the city’s outskirts, long-standing cultural traditions like geishas and temples are found within Kyoto’s borders. Before you think you’ve got a clear idea of the city’s layout though, don’t forget to add skyscrapers and a modern downtown district to the mix! All that being said, it should come as no surprise that Kyoto can only be completely “seen” and understood through experience. That also means that it’s much better virtually explored with photos, rather than words and descriptions! So, I hope you enjoy this virtual tour of Kyoto in 20 pictures! 😊📷
