Kyoto is the ancient Capitol of Japan, with more than 1200 years of history. Visitors here can wander amid beautiful gardens, tour serene Buddhist temples, cross paths with a geisha, and take part in a tea ceremony. Best of all is simply wandering the the streets of the city, absorbing the sights, smells, and sounds of this remarkable place. The people are gracious, polite and go out of their way to help the wandering tourist. After only spending three days in Kyoto we got a great feel for the city as we walked everywhere and that’s how you become familiar and fall In love with Kyoto. Spotless, that’s one of the first things you notice, I haven’t seen a single scrap of trash on the ground. Everything is immaculate which, given the incredible lack of trash cans across the city, is somewhat baffling.
