Everyone knows Kyoto. It receives over 30 million visitors a year and the crowds can be intense, but take the time to explore just a little and you’ll find winding cobbled alleyways lined with intimate restaurants, notice small temples tucked between nondescript office blocks, and catch glimpses of peaceful gardens in otherwise built up areas. In fact, part of its charm is just wandering around and seeing what you happen to stumble across. Don't let the huge numbers of visitors put you off - there's a reason why so many people go to Kyoto, and it's worth adding to your itinerary, too.
