Radiology in Kyoto, Japan
April 25 – May 01, 2021
Kyoto, located in the Kansai region of Japan, is the country's seventh largest city. It is the old Imperial Capital and the Cultural Heart of Japan. In 794, Kyoto, (then known as Heian-kyō) was chosen as the new seat of Japan's imperial court. The Emperors of Japan ruled from Kyoto for eleven centuries until 1869 when the court relocated to Tokyo. The modern municipality of Kyoto was established in 1889. The city was spared from large-scale destruction during World War II and as a result, its pre-war cultural heritage has mostly been preserved.
Kyoto is dedicated to preserving Japan's oldest traditions, yet it is also a dynamic, contemporary city. Modern conveniences are readily available, making Kyoto a perfect destination to explore Japan's past without sacrificing the comforts of today. Known as a national dining mecca, Kyoto proudly offers traditional Japanese cuisines, such as sushi, tofu and obanzi (Kyoto home-style fare). Shopping is also a unique experience in Kyoto, with merchandise ranging from traditional Japanese crafts made by local artisans to cutting-edge couture.
Kyoto is home to numerous Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, palaces and gardens, many of which are listed collectively by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Prominent landmarks include the Kyoto Imperial Palace, Kiyomizu-dera, Kinkaku-ji, Ginkaku-ji and the Katsura Imperial Villa
