  • The Museum located in the Nishi hongan-ji Temple. With nobles of Heian dynasty living Buri has been reproduced, visited the very interesting. The fifth floor of a building State-of-the-ordinary, so I was surprised.

  • This small museum was hard to find, but I'm so glad we persisted because it was definitely worth it once we got there. The museum is on an upper floor of an office building, so once you are at the str...  more »

  • The Genji Costume Museum is just one room, and other than some clothing and musical instruments it features a meticulously constructed replica of a house described in The Tale of Genji. Unless you are a fan of the novel or want to see Heian-era living in three dimensions, it may not be of interest. Some years ago the museum allowed visitors to dress up in Heian-era clothes, but not anymore it seems. Photography is allowed and admission is 500 yen.
  • high quality!
  • € 5 entry to see costumes on miniatures... ouch ouch! It looks nice anyway because the Japanese have the attention to detail and this is well ^^

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
