Japan's most beautiful cherry blossoms

Kyoto is Japan’s most inviting destination, a city steeped in tradition colliding with the modern world. Nestled in the heart of Western Honshu, the city was the residence of the Emperor from 794 until the Meiji Restoration of 1868. The opulence of the royal life left its mark on Kyoto’s parks, gardens, temples, Imperial Palace and villas. Visit Kyoto during the cherry blossom season for an experience you will never forget.
