  • There's a place not to be missed in Kyoto and I discovered in this fifth stay in Kyoto. Take bus 26 or 28 to the Mibudera-Michi stop. Downhill, take the small road going up right on the same side as the bus stop. Almost ' in front of the Mibudera temple, you will see the entrance to the small museum... In the former home of the samurai in Mibu Goshi dating from 1820 beautifully maintained hundreds of Netsuke summon your imagination than the Japan can tell you: nature: flower, animals,..., theatre, masks...

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.
