Kyoto Visitor's Guide

Kyoto is friendly to foreign visitors

More than one million foreign visitors stay at hotels in Kyoto each year. It is easy to get around without speaking or understanding Japanese. Local people are renowned for their hospitality. According to a recent survey conducted in 2013, 95% of visitors from abroad were satisfied with their visit and 91% of them wished to come back again.

Japan is NOT expensive to visit

You might think Japan is expensive to visit from abroad. Well, it used to be, but not anymore! Partly due to recent favorable exchange rate for foreign currencies, it is now affordable and prices are comparable to, or even lower than, those in European and American countries. For example, one can stay in a clean and comfortable hotel room with breakfast in Kyoto for about $150-200 per night. A decent lunch costs about $10-15.
