The City of Ten Thousand Shrines. Kyoto. Traditional. Preserved. And full of tourists. This city is very different from others. Relaxed, perhaps a little spoiled. But nonetheless charming, beautiful and full of pictorial pleasure. Most jewels of Kyoto are located on the outskirts of the city, up the hills. But not all of them. People in kimono, traditional architecture, and beautiful gardens can be found everywhere.
This chapter is about the spirit of Kyoto, the Capital City.
