As the former capital, many major temples, important shrines
and imperial palaces were built here. Unlike some cities in Japan, Kyoto was almost untouched during the World War II bombing that nearly destroyed some cities. The city’s ancient temples and shrines draw more than 50 million visitors into the city each year.

Kyoto has seventeen World History sites including some of its 1,700 temples and 400 shrines. Many tourists see Kyoto as the cultural and spiritual capital of Japan.

Senso-ji is Tokyo's oldest and most sacred temple. It is dedicated to Kannon, the Buddhist goddess of mercy.

More than 30 million visitors annually pour through the gates leading to the
Main Hall. Along the way, they enjoy the local delicacies, arts, crafts, and souvenirs at the fifty shops along Nakamise Street.

Other sites include beautiful Sumida Park and the Tokyo Skytree.
