Introducing Kyoto


Over a thousand years of history have shaped Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital. Thus, the city of Kyoto is an embodiment of traditional Japan, and a discussion of it involves every aspect of Japanese culture, from the tea ceremony to temple architecture, from festivals to Zen gardens. 87 superb colour plates have been especially selected so that each period of Kyoto’s vivid history is represented in chronological order by its outstanding buildings and works of art. With maps and a useful chronology, this absorbing introduction to an enchanting city is something no visitor should be without.
