Kyoto was the Imperial capital of Japan from 794 to 1868. Countless historically priceless structures survive in the city today, including 2 Imperial villas, 200 Shinto shrines, 1500 Buddhist temples and over 60 beautiful gardens. As it still retains most of its old world charm, tradition sits side by side with modern culture. The appeal of Kyoto is its “traditional modernism”.
