Kyoto – one of the former capitals of Japan – has held on to its Imperial past, as the rest of Japan has continued to advance at an irresistible pace.

There are a number of locations, that still to this today, provide windows into the spiritual and historical stories of the years gone by.

Below, are a select few photos that I hope give you a feel for the beautiful city.
