Kyoto
The Essential
Highly recommended
With 2,000 temples and shrines and 200 listed gardens, Kyoto is home to nearly 20% of Japan's national treasures and twenty or so Unesco World Heritage Sites, without forgetting 37 universities, with their fair share of Nobel prize winners. However even if the former capital of Japan has successfully withstood the test of time for 11 centuries, it has not been spared the ravages of rampant urbanism. Kyoto is nonetheless an exceptional city that is wholeheartedly committed to clean industry.
