Kyoto & Nara

Journeys to the beautiful cities of Kyoto and Nara. Kyoto is Japan's equivalent of Jerusalem or Varanasi- a former capital from a more religious age, which is now a center of temples and shrines surrounded by modernity. The atmosphere, the sights, sounds, scents and tastes are all evocative of the heart of Japanese culture. For me it is more of a pilgrimage than a travel experience, but I suppose at the end of the day, it is a bit of each.
