Steeped in history, tradition and beauty, Kyoto reflects the changing of the seasons more than any other city in the world. There are 2000 temples and shrines to visit, the intricate culture of Geisha, tea houses, Zen gardens, and artisan crafts that are just as important today as they were a thousand years ago. In a compact, light paperback format perfect for slipping into your back pocket, Kyoto Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city's most interesting cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences.
Divided into separate precincts, each section lists the best shops, restaurants, bars and sights to see in the area. There are also a selection of 'field trips' that encourage you to venture outside the city, on the Eizan and Nara train lines, and to Arashiyama.
With a beautiful design, vibrant images and detailed reviews, you'll easily navigate Kyoto's ancient pathways and bonsai gardens. Konnichi-wa and welcome to Kyoto!
