Japan the way is was

Kyoto is the old imperial capital of Japan. It is a world heritage site with Castles, Temples and Gardens that came at you from all directions the moment you arrive. Kyoto is an amazing city a place where the visitor can see Japan as it used to be it is impossible not to fall in love with the city. Kyoto has many historical sites that have always been there ie. they have not been destroyed by war. Kyoto was one of few Japanise cities not destroyed in WWII so many old places were not touched.

Kyoto is just amazing it is a place to escape the normal hussle of most of Japan. The uniqueness of the place can be see everywhere you don't have to search to find it.

Temples and Gardens
