Kyoto

Kyoto was Japan's official capital and the emperor's residence from 794 until 1868. Because of its many historical sites, the city was not a target of air raids during World War II. There are numerous shrines, temples, and gardens that are collectively designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We stayed in Kyoto for 5 days. One of the other students and I both got food poisoning while we were there. It was also very hot (105 degrees Fahrenheit, 41 degrees Celsius) while we were there, so sightseeing was not as enjoyable as it might have been. The city is exceptionally beautiful, though, and more than worth the trip to see even if you went nowhere else in Japan.
