Kyoto Prefecture

    Kyoto. The old capital. The depth of history here is staggering. Despite its modernity, the heartbeat of Kyoto is still traditional.

    Shutterbugs can't miss the Kiyomizu Temple complex (the view of the city is amazing). Head to the Gion district to see geisha performances, then to Minamiza Theatre for kabuki. Walking through the torii gates of Fushimi Inari Shrine and the bamboo grove of Arashiyama will leave you breathless.

    Enjoy your trip to Kyoto. Just be careful. You may not ever want to leave.
