Japan’s spiritual heart, Kyoto is a masterpiece of religious architecture with some 2,000 temples and shrines throughout. Impervious to the modern city, chanting prayers resonate through Zen gardens and incense wafts through the air. Kyoto is also packed with every kind of eatery, from Michelin-starred restaurants to izakaya.
