Kyoto, Bali

Kyoto, Japan

Ancient Kyoto was the imperial capital of Japan for over a thousand years.

Surrounded by scenic hills to the north, west and east, which the founding Emperor Kammu described as a natural fortress, the city reigned from 794 to 1868 as the cultural and artistic centre of the nation - a position it still holds today - as well as the political nucleus.

The more than 1,600 Buddhist temples and 270 Shinto shrines attest to its importance as a religious focal point, while the impressive Imperial Palace and two jewel-like Imperial villas set in their legendary gardens are reminiscent of the aesthetic splendour of the city's once-pivotal role.

But Kyoto originally called Heiankyo Capital of Peace doesn't live only in the past. The seventh largest city in Japan with a population of 1.4 million, it has also kept pace with the modern world. Thriving electric, machinery and chemical plants are numerous. The comprehensive Kyoto International Conference Hall located in the north-eastern part of the city is a marvel of state-of-the-art technology. Combined with the remarkable array of other superb attractions, it has made Kyoto a world-class convention destination. Some of the most prestigious universities in the country are also situated here, forming a major educational enclave.

However, the vast wealth of traditional art, architecture and crafts that have influenced architects and artists from around the globe have been carefully and lovingly preserved. So whether viewing the dazzling Golden Pavilion mirrored in its smooth, reflecting pond, absorbing a glittering, time-honoured festival, or simply wandering through picturesque narrow streets resonant with antiquity, Kyoto is a city unlike any other that offers both to stimulate - and satisfy - the soul.
