About Kyoto

Kyoto: A Harmony of Tradition and Innovation

Founded over 1,200 years ago, Kyoto enjoys a unique combination of outstanding traditional architecture and beautiful nature alongside a cutting-edge culture of learning, research and business. Proud conservators of Japanese heritage, from tea ceremony and sake brewing to kimono wearing, swordsmanship and more, the city’s 1.5 million inhabitants are also knowledge leaders and innovators, with 12 of the country’s 22 Nobel laureates having a direct connection to the city and her institutions.


Amidst the dynamic modernity of today’s Japan this ancient capital offers a plethora of temples, gardens, palaces and shrines to explore, including 17 UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites. Compact and accessible with an excellent transit system, Kyoto is a safe and friendly destination for travelers. The Japan Accessible Tourism Center has a list of popular attractions in Kyoto and a summary of their accessibility.
