Kyoto Prefecture Travel Guide

Kyoto was Japan’s ancient capital and remains the country’s cultural heart. Kimono-wearing locals are regularly seen around town. In the central city, visitors are drawn to Kyoto Tower, the Kyoto Imperial Palace, Nishiki-Tenmangu Shrine, and Seimei Shrine. To the northeast in the famous Arashiyama area is Tenryu-ji temple and the glorious bamboo forest. This is a great place to view the cherry blossoms and the fall foliage. Finally, don’t miss Uji to the south, or beautiful Amanohashidate to the north.
