Info about Kyoto

827 km2

Kyoto is a city in Honshu Island, Japan. Initially, the administrative capital of Japan, it is now the capital of the Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto metropolitan area. With an estimated population of about 1.5 million inhabitants, Kyoto has a host of Buddhist temples, palaces, gardens and museums, many of which are World Heritage Sites.
Surrounded by mountains on three sides, Kyoto has hot, humid summers and cold winters. Spring and autumn are the most pleasant seasons and the lush vegetation coupled with the friendly climate make these two seasons an ideal time to visit.
Kyoto has been active in all fields such as education, culture and industry from the early nineties. Today, it is the only city in Japan to have most preserved the traditional architecture. Kyoto’s economy is mainly based upon tourism, electronics and handicrafts.
