Kyoto, once home to emperors and aristocrats, has a history of more than 1,200 years and is one of the most refined and sophisticated places in the world. This long-standing culture is not an ancient art, but rather a living, evolving tradition that continues to transform in the modern age. People are always fascinated by the beauty and sophistication of its diverse offerings such as its perfectionist Japanese food culture, registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage and elegant crafts, from intricate calligraphy to tea ceremony utensils to colorful dyed paper and fabric to glittering gold and silver objects to Kyo-yaki ceramics, and more. 11423695666?profile=RESIZE_710x
