Japan, as it was, is still here in Kyoto. This is a delicate city with old buildings oozing with character. It’s refined. It personifies the spirit we Japanese want to project. Do visit the shrines and temples but do also take home with the unspoken, intangible grace. Our hope is that your trip to Kyoto helps you see the deeper Japan. Kyoto offers an experience that is unique to this city, something very difficult to express in words. It's not just the visual. The food here, tofu, match, and kaiseki is to be enjoyed with the five senses as is the culture personified throughout the city. There are so many temples and shrines it's impossible to see them all in one visit. Please do make Kyoto one of your stops in your travels to Japan.
