ONCE the capital of Japan, the ancient city of Kyoto is arguably the most evocative of Japanese cities. A popular tourist destination, Kyoto boasts numerous classical Buddhist temples, gardens, imperial palaces, Shinto shrines, and traditional wooden houses.

It is also world-famous for its formal traditions such as kaiseki dining and tea ceremony performed by some of the best tea masters in the region. The ancient Japanese capital – it ruled from the 9th to the 19th Century – draws huge numbers of foreign travelers every year, eager to experience Kyoto’s exotic delights.

From sweeping pagoda roofs to Zen Buddhist monks in divine contemplation, and even serene geishas gazing from behind decorated fans, here are a handful of stunning snapshots of what you can expect when you visit the beautiful and spellbinding Kyoto:
