Kyoto is rich in nature and has many shrines, temples, and cultural assets. There remain exquisite cultures and industries that have been developed over a thousand years, and you can see historical landscapes and Kyoto’s unique lifestyle rooted in the city. However, it is getting difficult for us to carry on passing down our traditions due to the changing global circumstances and the transition in lifestyles. Preserving what Kyoto has maintained is no longer possible by ourselves alone.
The City of Kyoto hopes that the city’s historic accumulation, which have supported the development of cultures and industries in Japan, will continue to attract and inspire people in the world. We would like to invite you to our programs to preserve Kyoto and pass it down to next generations.
