Gion Matsuri Image
An evening scene in Gion Festival

It has been several years since my wife and I moved to Kyoto (from Seattle, WA). Our original plan was to live here for a couple of years and to go back to Seattle (or somewhere in Europe), but we are still here. We have been fascinated by the beauty of people in Kyoto, depth of its culture, foods, etc., and we can hardly leave here for now. There are still many more things that we want to experience in Kyoto and also many places where we should visit.

The area within the radius of 5 – 6 kilometers centered by JR Kyoto Station is considered the central district of city of Kyoto. It is really convenient – everything is available within walking distance such as supermarkets, banks, department stores, restaurants, bars and cultural & historical spots.

I thought it will be nice to share some of my experiences with those who are interested in Kyoto and those who are planning to visit here.

ILoveKyoto.Com was just released, so the volume of the contents is still not enough. Check back from time to time to see if there are information that you are looking for.
