Kyoto, the traditional city!

Kyoto, the former imperial capital of Japan, is the cultural capital of the country and the perfect city if you want to discover Japanese culture. Indeed, it is full of Unesco World Heritage sites and is very popular with tourists.

Go for a walk in Higashiyama and discover the traditional Japanese architecture, meet a Geisha in the Gion district or take a walk on the banks of the Kamogawa, a river that crosses the city from north to south, so many activities not to be missed in Kyoto!

On weekends, go on an adventure for a day and discover the historic temples of Nara, or the island of Miyajima where you will have the chance to discover the Itsukushima sanctuary and its famous floating torii, one of the three most famous sights in Japan!

After school or work, enjoy the sunset at Kodai-ji, share a meal with friends in the Pontocho district or check out the Nishiki night market where you can taste many local specialties!
