This international sightseeing city, rich in historical and cultural atmosphere, is a city representative of traditional Japan. Kiyomizudera Temple, situated harmoniously in the lush, deep green of Higashiyama Mountain, and Ryoanji Temple, known for its karesansui gardens, are famous Buddhist temples that have been designated as World Heritages. Kyoto offers countless opportunities for one to fully experience the true essence of Japanese culture.

Arashiyama is famous for its cherry blossoms and autumn foliage, and the Togetsukyo Bridge over Katsuragawa has become a symbol of the area. Nearby, one can enjoy many shrines, temples, and gardens, including the Tenryuji Temple of Zen Buddhism as well as Nonomiya-jinja Shrine, and Okouchi-sanso. Going a bit further, one finds even more sight-seeing opportunities, including Seiryo-ji, Daikaku-ji, Kozan-ji, and Jingo-ji temples.
