Steeped in history and heritage, Kyoto was actually the capital of Japan until 1868 when the latter was relocated to Tokyo. Although it continues to be the country’s cultural centre with over 1,600 temples spread across its neighbourhoods, there is more to the traditional charm of the scenic city than meets the eye, with each district possessing its own distinct character.
