Kyoto Tourism: Best of Kyoto
A passageway to Japan's past, full of World Heritage sites and traditional arts
The shrines and temples of Kyoto offer a rare link between modern life in the city and its very ancient past. The Shimogamo Shrine dates to the 6th century and seems suspended in time, its serenity and spiritual power still palpable. Visit Fushimi Inari Shrine, then see the life-sized Thousand Armed Kannon statues of Sanjūsangen-dō. Take in traditional geisha performances, then savor a tranquil meal at a restaurant overlooking the Kamo River.
