Kyoto is a beautiful city in Japan that still echoes its long and romantic history. Serving as Japan’s capital and the emperor’s residence from 794 until 1868, it is now the country’s seventh largest city with a population of 1.4 million people. Over the centuries, Kyoto was destroyed by many wars and fires, but due to its historic value, the city was dropped from the list of target cities for the atomic bomb and spared from air raids during World War II. Countless temples, shrines and other historically priceless structures survive in the city today. Below are a few photos from Nomadic Matt and his time there.
