Holidays to Kyoto

Kyoto is unquestionably one of Japan’s leading destinations for history, cultural sites and natural beauty. Largely untouched by the ravages of World War II, Kyoto still boasts an incredible array of architectural delights, having played host to Japan’s Emperors and rulers for over 1,000 years. Imperial palaces, temples, shrines, and magical gardens of moss-covered bridges and trickling streams are commonplace throughout this now-cosmopolitan city. Visit the iconic 14th century Golden Pavilion for a taste of once regal life, or the Kiyomizu-dera, Sanjūsangen-dō and Nishi Honganji Temples as a tranquil escape from the city. And of course there’s no leaving Kyoto without having wandered the streets of the ancient Gion district - keep an eye out, and you might even spot a geisha girl here.
