Getting Around in Kyoto

The astonishing number of temples, shrines, and palaces that adorn the city make Kyoto's architecture its most famous feature to visitors. Japan's capital for more than 1,000 years, Kyoto was the center not only for politics, but religion, philosophy, art, culture, and cuisine. Every one of Japan's refined cultural arts blossomed from seeds that were planted here, including the tea ceremony, Kabuki theater, Zen, and Tantric Buddhism.
