Chosen as the capital of Japan in 794, Kyoto has been the residence of the Japanese Imperial Family till 1868. 

With the strong influence of aristocrats, warrior, and religious sectors, the foundation of many Japanese ideas, cultures, and practices were created and established here. And uniquely, you still can see and experience those tradition daily throughout a year.   I usually combine the must visit popular spots and niche quiet only Japanese visit places or even include the limited time exhibitions. Or we can simply discuss your customized private tour.
