The Little Book of Kyoto is a celebratory visual guide to one of the world's truly unique cities.

Kyoto was Japan's imperial capital for one thousand years as well as its cultural birthplace. A companion to the best-selling travel book The Little Book of Japan, this captivating volume weaves words and images to form a rich tapestry of the fantastic sights of Kyoto including dozens of World Heritage Sites as well as gardens, temples, shrines, shopping areas, festivals, and food.

A series of forty-eight essays organized into four chapters cover Kyoto's imperial legacy, cultural highlights, the city's Zen heritage, and its essential spirit. Veteran photojournalist Ben Simmons continues a journey of discovery begun over twenty-five years ago, seeking fresh insights and an immersive take on this endlessly compelling city combining history, art, cultural commentary, and travel tips.

Small enough to carry anywhere, this book is the perfect guide for any visitor to Kyoto, whether planning a first trip or taking a more in-depth look beneath the surface of this ancient capital.
