More about Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto experiences four distinct seasons, each with its unique charm. Spring (March-May) brings pleasant temperatures and the iconic cherry blossoms, while summer (June-August) is warm and humid. Autumn (September-November) offers vibrant foliage and comfortable weather, and winter (December-February) is cool and occasionally snowy.

The currency used in Kyoto is the Japanese Yen (JPY). Pack layers for changeable weather and comfortable shoes for exploring the city's many temples and shrines. In summer, lightweight and breathable clothing is recommended, while in winter, warm layers, including a coat and scarf, are essential. Do bring along an umbrella for occasional rain showers.
