Welcome to Kyoto

Serving as Japan’s capital for more than 1,000 years, Kyoto is the historic center of the country, filled with temples, shrines, imperial villas and other memorials to the nation’s past. Although the modern age has taken its toll, exudes a graceful charm reminiscent of the glory and splendor of Japan’s ancient past, from its narrow residential streets lined with temples and traditional wooden homes to its many craft stores that have been passed down for generations. There is no other city in Japan quite like it.

The best way to discover the “real Japan” is to include Kyoto on your itinerary. However, with a good map in hand and some planning in mind a visitor will quickly discover the incredible richness of Kyoto’s past. There are over 1,700 Buddhist temples, 300 Shinto shrines, palaces and gardens, and some of Japan’s top museums and galleries located in this city. Although there is so much to see and do in Kyoto, even a short-time visitor can soon get an appreciation of what this ancient capital has to offer. The best time to visit Kyoto is in the spring and fall when the weather is at its finest.

Best Home stay near Kyoto, Kyoto village home stay, when you enter the beautiful gorge of Hozukyo, the gateway to Kameoka, it is hard to imagine that the bustle of Kyoto train station was only twenty minutes ago, and that minutes ahead lies the lush green valley of Kameoka.
