Kyoto Tourism: Best of Kyoto

About Kyoto
Only Rome has more designated World Heritage Sites than the former Japanese capital. This city of 1.5 million has a stunning array of temples and shrines, including Kinkaju, the Golden Pavilion, and the Ryoanji zen garden. Walk around Old Kyoto, through alleys of traditional narrow wooden houses, known as "houses for eels", to restaurant terraces along the River Kamo. The geisha quarter's Gion Corner offers glimpses into traditional arts, from puppetry to kyo-mai, dance performances by apprentice geisha.
