Japan - Kyoto (Chapter)
This is the Kyoto chapter from Lonely Planet’s Japan guidebook.
For much of its history, Kyoto was Japan. Even today, Kyoto is the place to go to see what Japan is all about. Here is where you’ll find all those things you associate with the Land of the Rising Sun: ancient temples, colourful shrines and sublime gardens. Indeed, Kyoto is the storehouse of Japan’s traditions, and it’s even the place where the Japanese go to learn about their own culture.
