Kyoto Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


As soon as it was founded in the 8C, Kyoto – now a UNESCO World Heritage Site – was one of the largest capitals in the world and renowned for its magnificence and its spirit. It was here that the uniqueness of Japanese culture emerged. The 16C brought fresh impetus to the city's spiritual and cultural life. Spared from earthquakes and the onslaught of the Second World War, and having opted for clean industry, Kyoto has retained its architectural integrity. Its 3 000 temples and shrines and 200 gardens are the cornerstones for an escapade among the treasures of the past. Rediscover the art of taking your time.
