A city of culture and history

 By Jillian Engelhard Fosten   Oct 31, 2014

Once known as Japan's capital, Kyoto is a hub for food, culture and history. With lively streets, unique finds, and contemporary comforts; Kyoto still manages to uphold many of its traditions. Stunning gardens and beautiful temples run through the city and its outskirts. it is also home to Japan's largest Geisha district, Gion. A trip to Kyoto is a must on any itinerary if you want to immerse yourself in Japanese culture.
