Kyoto, in the island of Honshu, is the ancient Imperial capital of Japan. With 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Kyoto prefecture alone, and hundreds of other treasures, Kyoto is a must-see in Japan and will keep you busy for a few days. Whether you want to visit gorgeous Japanese gardens, a bamboo forest, temples and shrines, or a manga museum, Kyoto has it all. You will find here pictures from Sansujangendo (unfortunately its 1001 statues cannot be photographed), Kiyomizu temple, Kinkaku-ji (the Golden pavilion) and the bamboo forest - these kept me very busy during my free day in Kyoto and are just an apetizer of what Kyoto has to offer.

If you like the pictures in this gallery, you might also like the pictures of Tokyo, the pictures of Nikko, the pictures of Matsumoto, all on :) The pictures in this gallery were shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II associated with Canon EF 17-40mm f4L USM and Canon EF 100mm f2.8L IS USM Macro.
