A treasure box of World Heritages
Historic legacies handed down from generation to generation.
Spring with the pale pink cherry blossoms, summer with the lively green color, fall with the mountains colored in red and yellow, and winter with quietness found in Japanese traditional ink drawings. Kyoto delights you with its unique impression by season. With seventeen buildings registered as World Heritages, Kyoto embraces many old temples and shrines, welcoming hundreds of thousands of tourists both from all over Japan and other countries throughout the year. The ancient city is lively with many festivals. Among them, the charming Gion Festival in July and the dignified Daimonji Bonfire in August are the two most famous and popular ones. Kyoto should be the city you want to visit once in a lifetime.
