The ancient capital of Japan, although it lost this official status, remained one of the main cities of the country. For many centuries, the imperial families rebuilt Kyoto, giving it its current features. Architectural features of the districts are difficult to convey in a nutshell. The number of buildings in the traditional Japanese style is impressive. These are tea houses, pagodas, and pavilions. There are many wooden structures among them, which is usually not typical for cities with millions of inhabitants.
The main attractions of Kyoto are temple complexes. Some of them are converted from the palaces and villas of the shoguns, for example, the Golden Pavilion. The national peculiarities of Japan are not forgotten in our time. Visiting the Gion quarter or Nishiki Market allows tourists to plunge into the color of the land of the Rising Sun.
