The city is one of the most historically and culturally important cities in Japan. Kyōto is located in the southwest of Japan's Honshū Peninsula in the Kansai region. Between 794 and 1868, the city was also the seat of the imperial court.
And to this day, the former imperial city maintains its tradition and cultural richness. More than 14 temple complexes and Shintō shrines have therefore been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, along with three others in the neighboring cities of Uji and Ōtsu.
Kyōto offers travelers its very unique flair: the lively life of its inhabitants, the bright colors in the streets as well as the impressive monuments from the imperial era make the city a desired destination for city travelers from all over the world!

Pink, in all its color variations, as far as the eye can see! During the cherry blossom season, Japan and the city of Kyōto immerse themselves in a sea of pink cherry blossoms, offering a spectacular sight to visitors from all over the world.
The delicate cherry blossoms, which bloom at the beginning of the first warmer days of spring, are a symbol of beauty and transience in Japan. To honor them, the Hanami - the Cherry Blossom Festival - is traditionally held. Hanami means "blossom viewing" and so many Japanese and travelers gather to marvel at the beautiful blossoms.
In Maruyama Park in Kyōto, near the Yasaka Shrine, many enjoyment stands are set up in the spring with regional specialties. So you can combine the fantastic natural spectacle with the culinary treasures of Japan and spend unforgettable hours with your friends under the cherry blossoms!
