Join us in Kyoto, Japan

There’s SO Much to Love About Kyoto, Japan!

Kyoto is a gorgeous, magical city with a rich cultural heritage as Japan’s ancient capital. The city is home to numerous temples, palaces, historic cultural buildings, and extraordinary gardens. In addition to its cultural attractions, Kyoto is also known for its traditional cuisine, including sushi, tempura and udon. It’s a special place, and we are super-excited to bring Adventurous Life here.

Temples and Natural Beauty Galore

Kyoto, Japan’s capital city until it was replaced in 1868 by Tokyo, is considered to be the most culturally important city in all of Japan. It combines a rich history (recognized as a World Heritage Site by Unesco) with a modern focus on education and industrial sectors such as IT and electronics. It’s a bustling city, with museums and performances, malls and skyscrapers—all amidst the serenity of temples and impeccably tended gardens.

Bottom line: Kyoto is a charming, must-visit city for all Adventurous Life travelers. It offers a unique opportunity to experience traditional Japanese culture and natural beauty—AND living/working here for a month here means you can visit a lot more of the city’s 1,600 temples than if you were just passing through as a tourist!

Gorgeous, Tranquil Gardens

A visit to Kyoto’s traditional Japanese gardens can be a truly immersive experience that provide respite from the busyness of modern life. From the famous Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, with hundreds of towering bamboo stalks, to the austere rock garden at the Ryoan-ji Temple to the flamboyant stroll gardens at Ginkaku-ji Temple, the city has more than 1,000 gardens.

The seat of Japanese imperial power for six centuries, Kyoto Imperial Palace stands within the sprawling Kyoto Gyoen National Garden. The garden, a unique and stunning part of the Japanese culture and history, is one of the best places in the city center to relax, enjoy fine weather, or picnic with friends. It’s full of trails, lush grass fields, and seasonal flowers. On any given day you can people-watch the locals taking a bench break, jogging, walking their dogs, or biking.

Fabulous Fall Foliage

Kyoto is known internationally as Japan’s ancient capital, filled with temples, shrines and historic buildings. And we’re definitely here for that. 😃

But one of the reasons we chose to go to Kyoto is the famous fall foliage, when the leaves of the Japanese maples, ginkgo trees and other deciduous trees turn blazing shades of red, yellow and orange. It’s a sight to behold and one of the most beautiful times of the year to be here.

World Class & World Famous Cuisine

Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital, is known for its temples, gardens, and geisha. The city is also a must-visit for any food lover, with world-famous cuisine. The city hosts a wide variety of restaurants and cafes, offering everything from traditional Japanese sushi, udon and ramen to more modern Western cuisine. You can also join a cooking class to learn more about Kyoto’s culinary culture.

Kyoto is also home to one of the most unique food experiences anywhere: the traditional multi-course Japanese dinner known as “kaiseki.” Originally presented to the royal noble classes, kaiseki is a made up of beautifully plated, meticulously prepared and exquisitely served dishes. It’s the embodiment of the Japanese concept of “omotenashi,” which means wholehearted hospitality.

Special Experiences & Interesting Side Trips

Kyoto itself has plenty of unique experiences to indulge in when we’re there—from ramen or bento box cooking classes, to traditional tea ceremonies to getting lost in the narrow alleyways of the geisha district.

But you may want to take a side trip to Osaka (15-minute bullet train ride) or Tokyo (2.5-hour train ride). Some will feel that a trip to Hiroshima and its Peace Memorial Park and Museum is a must-do historical experience. It’s only a 1.5-hour train trip.

And there are other lesser known, but no less amazing, side trips, such as to see the world’s largest collection of 1,000 Buddha statues in Nara. A month goes quickly, but there’s time to experience more than just Kyoto.
