The best things to do in Kyoto

We begin our journey through the streets of Kyoto going directly to the center to discover the many Kyoto activities. This is where the Imperial Palace, birthplace of Japanese tradition and culture, and one of the main things to see in Kyoto,  is located. You should make a reservation at least twenty minutes before seeing the Palace. The tours have a closed schedule, beginning at 10:00 am and they conclude at 14:00. A few meters from the Nijo Castle, which was the residence of shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, one of the most important places to visit in Kyoto for its luxurious architecture. You'll find everything from art to culture because the Gion Corner houses the most Japanese traditional theater and arts ms located in one space. Mysticism becomes dormant in one of the most spectacular things to do in Kyoto. After this stop, you'll need a moment of rest and relaxation, even the restaurants are some of the most beautiful attractions in Kyoto.  Its old style, with every attention to detail, is a luxury for the senses. In the Higashiyama area, Sanjusangendo Temple is one of the most strikingly distinctive of Kyoto attractions. It has 1,001 gilded wooden statues of Kannon, the goddess of mercy. The list of stuff to do in Kyoto is endless, beginning with all the temple to visit. There are about 300 and each has a special charm. Kiyomizu temple is very famous because it's built on wooden pillars. The Katsura and Shugakuin imperial villas possess one of the most beautiful gardens in Kyoto. These represent the paradigm of typical japanese landscape and are a pride for the people of the area, as well as just one more activity on the list of what to do in Kyoto.
