City of Temples:

The culture of Japan originated and developed primarily under the influence of Buddhism, and the preservation of that cultural inheritance falls largely to temples. It is no overstatement to call Kyoto, the Buddhist capital, a living art museum, blessed as it is with many famous and ancient temples. The rustic beauty of Asuka, the grace of Fujiwara, the grandeur of Kamakura, the profundity of Muromachi, the splendor of Momoyama... With superb artistry from every era, the city of Kyoto faithfully preserves Japan's precious cultural hierarchy.
It would yet be wrong, not to mention the socio-economic, technical and scientific progress Japan owes to its old capital.
