Kyoto is one of Japan’s top 10 largest cities that boasts an extremely rich history and culture. Though we all know Tokyo as the capital city of Japan today, Kyoto had gained that status from 794 to 1868, during and after Emperor Kanmu’s reign. The city is a perfect marriage of modern and traditional cultures, with the aspects of modern-day Japan set amongst historical attractions. It is home to over 1000 temples and beautiful gardens, which gives the city a majestic quality.
If a visit to Kyoto is on your itinerary when visiting Japan (and it should be!), check out this list of some of the best Airbnb accommodations near Kyoto station; right in the heart of the city, a perfect home base for you to kickstart your journey.
