Kyoto, Japan

There are many places on earth we love to photograph.  Near the top of the list is Kyoto, Japan.  There is a charm and sensibility to the city that lends itself to pure enjoyment.

As the ancient capital of Japan, Kyoto is packed with photographic charms – temples, shrines, Maiko and abundant natural wonders.  One could spend months here and not be able to enjoy all that the city has to offer.

Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson, who argued to save the city, spared Kyoto WWII destruction.  His insistence is our reward.  Thanks to him the city remained for us to discover and enjoy.

We spent 2 days in Kyoto and tried to focus on the key sites that interested our group.  Those would be – Toji Temple, Silver Pavillion, Golden Pavillion, Kiyomizu Temple, Tofuku Temple, and Maiko.  Of course, we enjoyed some fantastic cuisine in Kyoto to boot.

We hope you enjoy the following shots.
