Kyoto

The cultural capital of Japan, Kyoto was mercifully spared in the Second World War so most of its great temples, shrines and gardens are intact. With no less than 17 World Heritage sites, one could take a week exploring this city and still not take it all in, but suffice to say a few days here gives the finest flavour of the country’s long heritage. With its lovingly landscaped havens, atmospheric side streets and Geisha flitting by, there is always something beautiful to catch the eye in the world’s second most-visited city. Giant Buddhist figures and the grand wooden temple of Todai-ji is a short distance away in Nara park where tame deer will be looking out for snacks!
