Kyoto and Izu
Walking around Kyoto, which was Japan’s Capital for more than 1000 years, feels like you’re stepping back in history. Around every corner, another temple, shrine, palace or historical site is waiting to be found, and no matter if you’re here to just take a look or pay your respects, the experience is deeply humbling.
