TOP5 Rankings in Kyoto
Where to stay in Kyoto
If you are visiting Kyoto for the first time, hotels or ryokans near Kyoto Station or in the center of Kyoto City are convenient for sightseeing. On the other hand, if you have already visited Kyoto, the Higashiyama or Arashiyama areas are recommended. Although the traffic is not very convenient, there are many great sightseeing spots within walking distance. Then if you love Onsen, you may want to stay in Arashiyama or Kameoka City. Onsen means “hot spring” in Japanese.
Best time to visit Kyoto
Kyoto is a place where you can enjoy the scenery of all four seasons, but spring and autumn are especially wonderful. In spring, the cherry blossoms bloom beautifully, and in autumn, the gardens and mountains turn red and yellow. In the spring and fall seasons, there are also light-up events held at night in various locations in Kyoto. It is very enjoyable to take a walk in Kyoto at night, which has a different charm from that of the daytime. Kyoto is very hot in summer and very cold in winter. On the contrary, spring and autumn are neither too hot nor too cold, making it ideal for sightseeing.
