Japan is full of beautiful places for sightseeing, and Kyoto is definitely not an exception! The city is rich in modern tourist attractions, while at the same time preserving its traditional Japanese history. Located about 4o minutes from Kansai Gaidai Universtiy, it is a hot spot for students to venture out to. I visited my first Japanese Temple, Kiyomizudera, which was an great eye-opening experience. It really gives you an insight to how much tradition, art, and ancient history is still relevant in Japan.
