New E-Book Published – Kyoto

Just published is my latest travel/photography e-book about the incredible city of Kyoto in Japan.

Kyoto is a fascinating city in Japan offering a wide range of attractions with numerous Buddhist temples, shinto shrines, gardens and imperial palaces, some of which are listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. Although a large modern city there are still many historical sights and heritage buildings with interesting architecture to be seen. 

The original city was known as Heian-kyō and served as Japan’s capital and the emperor’s residence from 794 until 1869 when the court was relocated to Tokyo.

Over the centuries, Kyoto was destroyed by many wars and fires, but due to its exceptional historic value, the city was dropped from the list of target cities for the atomic bomb and escaped destruction during World War II. Countless temples, shrines and other historically priceless structures survive in the city today.

Kyoto is a great walking city and there are a number of areas in the city such as Higashiyama, Gion and the famous Philosopher’s Path where you can take wonderful walks and experience the beauty and history of this city. 

Japanese food always offers an immense diversity of dishes and styles and Kyoto is an ideal location to sample this cuisine. Kyoto’s most famous local speciality is kaiseki dining consisting of multiple courses of precise dishes. 

This book offers a brief photographic insight into Kyoto with images of some of the key locations and attractions which should hopefully inspire you to visit sometime to experience all that the city offers.
