Kyoto : More than meets the eye

Kyoto (京都) was the capital of Japan for over a millennium and carries a reputation as its most beautiful city. However, visitors may be surprised by how much work they will have to do to see Kyoto's beautiful side. Most first impacts of the town will be of the urban sprawl of central Kyoto, around the ultra-modern glass-and-steel train station, which is itself an example of a city steeped in tradition colliding with the modern world. Nonetheless, the smart traveler will soon discover Kyoto's hidden beauty in the temples and parks which ring the city center and find that the city has much more to offer than instantly meets the eye.
