Welcome to Kyoto, Japan.

If you are looking to see a side of Japan different from Tokyo, the popular tourist city, then you will enjoy spending your holiday in Kyoto, which is on the island of Honshu. You will easily be swept away by all of the rich history and culture found in every ancient stone.

Since it was once the capital of Japan, you will find an abundance of spectacular gardens, Shinto shrines, imperial palaces, and classic Buddhist temples. While you are spending time in this city, you will want to observe several of the formal Japanese traditions, such as geisha entertainment in the Gion district and kaiseki dining.

There is nothing more special than experiencing a new culture in a historical city, so you will not want to return home without several photos to remind you of your time in Kyoto. A vacation photographer can help make that possible and make your holiday more memorable.
