Kyoto has a lot of ways to entertain you all year around. I always feel excited to see the scenery which make me feel the season, lovely flowers, and tempting dainty. You can appreciate not only cherry blossoms in the spring and autumn foliage in the fall, but also seasonal flowers with historical background. I would like to introduce to you breathtaking scenery, seasonal confectionery with astonishing craftsmanship, Kyoto cuisine in season like a work of art, and tradition and events passed down generation to generation. What if feel Kyoto in the season and liveliness of the locals?
