Kyoto Pictures

Welcome to Kyoto – the old Japanese city well-known for its stunning temples, gardens, breath-taking shrines and secret liaisons.

Kyoto has over 100 Buddhist temples and gardens that can be discovered by its visitors.

One of the most famous temples is the Temple of the Golden Pavilion – Kinkaku-ji that attracts the largest number of tourists each day.

Kyoto as a city is very rich in traditions and Buddhist religion. It’s incredibly colorful.

The most recognizable building in all of Kyoto is mentioned previously Kinkaku-ji (the Temple of the Golden Pavilion). Did you know that the top two levels of the three-level temple are covered in pure gold leaf? The temple, together with its reflection in the pond in front of it, make for a truly breathtaking view!

In today’s post we are sharing our photography from one of the most fascinating places in Japan hoping that you will feel the special vibe of Kyoto through these pictures.

The city is filled with colorful lanterns decorated with Japanese characters.

One of Kyoto’s highlights is Nijo Castle built in 1626.

If you ask nicely, you can take a picture with someone wearing kimono. There are also many places where you can rent one yourself (also available for men).

Would you add Kyoto for your travel bucket list?
