Description: Kyoto was once Japan’s capital for over a millennium, was also the Imperial Family’s residence from 794 to 1868. Due to its historic value, the city was spared from the air raids and atomic bomb during World War II. It is now Japan’s seventh largest city with a population of 1.4 million people, and with an intricate blend of modernism and traditions. Kyoto is home to numerous UNESCO’s World Heritage sites, and in addition to these heritage sites, there are more than 1600 Buddhist temples and over 400 Shinto shrines in this city.
One of the most well-known shrines among the people of Kyoto, this shrine is nicknamed "Oinari-san." The deity of this shrine is famous as the god of wealth. Originally called "Inenari," is the god of the grain harvest, worshipped not only by people operating businesses but by people engaged in agriculture as well. There are over 10,000 Torii gates lining the hilly footpaths. Each of the Torii is donated by a Japanese business. The donated Torii is now a famous sight of Kyoto city.
Sanjusangendo temple, literally means Hall with thirty three spaces between columns describing the architecture of the long main hall of the temple, is famous for its 1001 statues of Kannon. Kiyomizu-dera Temple is a historic temple that was established in 778, even before Kyoto became the capital of Japan. The Main Hall of the temple is designated as a national treasure. The temple has many other important cultural properties including the Deva gate, west gate, three-storied pagoda and bell tower. Kiyomizu main hall's balcony was built using a special method; huge 12-meter high keyaki (Japanese Zelkova) pillars were assembled without using a single nail, standing magnificently on a hillslope. Kyoto Imperial Palace, is the former Imperial Family’s residence from 794 to 1868. And Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion Temple) also known as Rokuonji (Deer Garden Temple), is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, whose top two floors are completely covered in gold leaf. Nijo Castle was built in 1603 as the Kyoto residence of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate (1603-1867). The Tokugawa Shogunate used Edo as the capital city, but Kyoto continued to be the home of the Imperial Court. These are just some of the few popular attractions frequent by visitors both local and overseas, it will linger in your memory forever. Visitors to Kyoto will soon discover its hidden beauty in the temples and gardens surrounding the city center.
