Kyoto Pocket Precincts

A Pocket Guide to the City's Best Cultural Hangouts, Shops, Bars and Eateries
Hardie Grant Books
By Steve Wide, By Michelle Mackintosh

Kyoto is steeped in history, tradition and beauty that reflect the changing seasons more than any other city in the world. There are 2,000 temples and shrines to visit, and the intricate culture of geisha, tea houses, Zen gardens and artisan crafts are just as important today as they were a thousand years ago. There are beautiful restaurants in centuries-old houses, but also some of the best street food in the world.
In this pocket-size travel guide, seasoned travellers Steve and Michelle offer a curated list of the very best cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences in Kyoto, as well as a few suggested field trips in surrounding areas. With a beautiful design, vibrant images and detailed reviews, you'll easily navigate the city's ancient pathways, through to its bonsai gardens. Konnichi wa and welcome to Kyoto!
