  • I visited in the mid-11. There went up a pretty steep hill, ample parking. You must climb the steep stairs who came by bus. Up the stairs and through the great Mikado Temple. Nokyo-sho on the variant thirty-three Western lined with many of you. Designated signs along some climb stairs and shine in Matsu of the natural monument and leaves the two-storied pagoda. Ahead of Bell, the great bell sounds. Proceed uphill approach and reach the yakushido, Kyoto City looks clean and nice white Kyoto Tower. Autumn leaves was very beautiful in full bloom is a little higher in it.

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.
