Mini Guide for Kyoto

Kyoto is an ancient city within Japan which used to be the capital of the country. It was not until midway through the 19th century that Tokyo became the capital of Japan. This is where you can go to see picture perfect temples and countryside. The city is tucked away in a range of mountains and if you wish to get out and see these more closely then consider one of our 4x4s.

Car hire in Kyoto is the perfect way to get there and have the freedom to go where you want, when you want. Although Kyoto offers a vision of Japan in times gone by, the centre of the city is very modern and you will love travelling to get to the picturesque areas. Much of the centre of the city was built around a futuristic railway station and buildings have sprawled out in every direction since then.
