Kyoto


Temple of the Golden Pavilion:
Temple of the Golden Pavilion in Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto was once the imperial capital of Japan, but today it is principally known outside of the country for the Kyoto Protocol (full name: Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change), which is an international treaty on climate change. The treaty, which was opened for signature on December 11th 1997, aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and assigns mandatory reductions for some signatories.

  • Kyoto Seven Paths to the Heart of the City
Product Description:
What better way to see Kyoto than at dawn, when the back streets and alleys of this 1,200-year-old city are still under the spell of the past? Old folks fuss about with their bonsai and laundry poles, pausing to chat on their way to the neighborhood shrine with flowers and morning prayers. Knock-kneed white egrets stalk the stream beds for breakfast, and the giant bronze temple bells awaken the former capital of Japan every morning as they have done for centuries.

Through wars, fires, famines, tyrants, and now rapid modernization, the old neighborhoods of Kyoto are the places where the customs and traditions of this fascinating city, with its confusing blend of old and new, have managed to survive.

American writer and former Kyoto resident Diane Durston introduces seven must-see precincts of this ancient capital city, including four Historic Preservation Districts. Among them are the world-famous geisha quarter, the kimono textile neighborhoods, the sake-brewing area of Fushimi, and the tea-growing region of Uji. Durston weaves together local lore and historical sites to create a panoply of provocative walking tours that take the reader back in time to the elegance of earlier days.

Accompanying each section is a full-color map and the fine photography of Katsuhiko Mizuno, a Kyoto native and one of the city's most famous photographers. Sections highlighting Kyoto crafts, cuisine, festivals, and tourist essentials round out this attractive volume, making it the perfect introduction —and guide— to one of the world's most evocative cities.

FEATURES
•  Photographs by one of Kyoto's most renowned photographers
•  Locations of the most important Historic Preservations Districts
•  Detailed maps and suggested routes
•  Scenic and little-known walking paths
•  Completely revised and updated information

Product Description:
Although it focuses on Tokyo and Kyoto -- the two Japanese cities that most tourists want to visit -- Frommer's EasyGuide to Japan also examines the Japanese locations to which most tourists make day-trips or longer excursions from the two must-sees. Enjoying a far more favorable exchange rate than in recent years, the now-moderately-priced Japan is enjoying a major upswing in its incoming tourism, and our experienced author of many previous guidebooks to Japan has made it even easier to enjoy, easier to understand, easier to tour, in a concise "Easy Guide" designed to fit into pocket or purse.
