  • Cars fold shrine is a little hard to go by car. Astray, into alleys and narrow, and have a hard time. It is recommended to train or bus. People were more likely to visit to pray for the improvement of art and practice a wood deck and lined with the tree tag there pretty pretty famous people. It is interesting to make sure those who have any time. The precinct will delight the eyes and cherry.

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.
