Kyoto city guide
Kyoto is the Japan of your imagination: quiet temples, sublime Zen gardens, colourful Shinto shrines and narrow alleys where geisha scurry to secret assignations.
Improved neighbourhood structure makes it easier to get around the city and Kyoto's UNESCO World Heritage-listed temples and historic monuments are the icing on the cake. The 5th edition of the Kyoto travel guidebook comes with a pull out map of the city and enhanced day-trip ideas like the buzzing city of Osaka.
