  • Immerse in the cultural wonders of Kyoto, Japan

    2011-09-25

    Kyoto, Japan, has retained a strikingly rich cultural atmosphere for generations and welcomes tourists to come and learn about this beautifully stunning area of Japan on their next trip abroad. Every visit to this vibrant city may be different, for there are countless attractions to experience, from dancing demonstrations, exotic culinary selections and hundreds of Buddhist temples to explore.

    The perfection of Japanese gardens may be best viewed at Daitoku-ji, reports Lonely Planet. Visitors here may feel like they have to hold their breath to make sure the beautifully raked sands and pruned vegetation are undisturbed.

    A must-see in Kyoto is a live performance of traditional Japanese dance. According to Fodor's, one of the best venues to catch a show is at the Gion Corner. Local women adorned with kimonos and elaborate makeup demonstrate customary movements to flutes and drums.

    Travelers can spend a whole evening at the Kikunoi restaurant, as some of the elaborate meals include more than one dozen courses of delicious Asian dishes. On the menu may be matsu-dake mushroom soup or a selection of sushi decorated with flowers.
