About City

Kyoto is former capital of Japan and for more than a thousand years the center of traditional Japanese culture. Located in west-central Honshu, in the picturesque valley of the Kamo River with surrounding mountains, it is one of the most historic and attractive of the world's cities.

For the traveler, whether Japanese or foreign, Kyoto is a place of endless fascination and delight. It is reached easily from Osaka International Airport or in about three hours by superexpress train from Tokyo. It forms part of a large urban complex referred to as the Kinki region, which includes Osaka and Kobe as well and preserves much of its historical charm and beauty in its many temples and shrines, its parks and gardens, and its old wooden houses with their gray tile roofs.

The city is also an important industrial center, suffering as all Japanese cities do from overcrowding, transportation bottlenecks, environmental pollution, and urban blight. Of the city's museums, the Kyoto Kokuritsu Hakubutsakan (Kyoto National Museum), with its extensive collection of Japanese paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts, is the most noteworthy. The work of contemporary artists is exhibited in the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.
