    Was also previously took from the United States, but this time, overflowed and discover new fun. Increasing spot in the ever popular Starbucks a stylish, newly opened restaurant and sweets shop, gift shop and more sophisticated. Since the weather was good ambience enjoying themselves to the foreign tourists, are exploring the city's. This is where tight, enjoy the fun of tourism. It is a momentum water restoration landscape does well, but will make it up. It is my favorite place in report a nice resting spot overlooking the mountains in the back like flower tea with sweets, but coincidentally, walking slowly.

    I loved this temple the most among all those in Kyoto. The red gates(tori) starts at the base of the inari hill and continue all the way to the shrine at the top. Its a very pleasant trek and offers panoramic views of Kyoto.

    Beautiful and serene yet charmingly busy area of Kyoto. During our ten day trip, this was maybe the spot best representing ancient Japan. I were even lucky enough to stumble across these wonderful Maiko (aspiring Geisha) outside our cafe.

    Vacationed to Japan, was in Kyoto for a night, and stayed off of Ninenzaka Street in a ryokan. Must see this place if in Kyoto. It takes you back to a different time. The architecture, landscaping, food, and sightseeing are unparalleled. An unforgettable place.

    Touristy, but very fun - a wonderful workout, too. Don't expect great shopping but still wholly enjoyable all the way up to the temple.

    Lovely slice of ancient Kyouto. Get some tea at one of the many teahouses/ice cream places with beautiful gardens for koi viewing and hanami. There are usually lots of people. The only way in and out for food deliveries is the same roads people walk on, so watch out for occasional cars and motorbike traffic. Ride a rickshaw if you want!

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.
