Kyoto Mini Guide

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. Part of the reason that everything has been so well preserved is because it was not bombed by the Allies during the Second World War. 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.

Kyoto Temple

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 actually 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.

Kyoto view

More than one and a half million people live in Kyoto, which is also the capital of the Kyoto prefecture. The surrounding metropolitan area is known as Osaka-Kobe-Kyoto as these are the three main cities. Nevertheless there are many parks which are great places to go walking and get away from the hustle and bustle. Kyoto is located in an island called Honshu. There are five main districts of Kyoto which are split directionally, North South, East, West and Central.

Latest Update from Kyoto:
