The capital of a thousand years
Kyoto, also known as the capital of a thousand years, preserves most of the Japanese historical architecture that are not current in other Japanese cities. This is its main charm, being able to travel back in time walking its streets. But do not forget that, above all, Kyoto offers a great experience for those interested in the mix of traditional and modern architecture.
The city has outstanding examples of contemporary architecture such as the Kyoto Concert Hall of Arata Isozaki, Kyoto Station, Kyoto International Conference Center designed by Sachio Otani, the Kitinama Ining ’23 by Shin Takamatsu, the Garden of Fine Arts by Tadao Ando and the Kyoto Tower of Mamoru Yamada, among others. In Kyoto, more than anywhere else in Japan, it is where tradition and modernity blend.
