PRLog - Jan. 19, 2014 - KYOTO, Japan -- Its greatest attraction is the sensation of serenity and mystery that the austere winter atmosphere brings to Kyoto and this is the favored time of year for the true connoisseurs of Kyoto. Marvel at the delicate beauty of Japanese gardens and elegant machiya-style houses, unique to Kyoto, all beneath a veil of glistening snow. The bare plants and trees of the flowerless winter scenery also present an unrivalled opportunity to appreciate the distinct Japanese "wabi-sabi" sense of aesthetic, in the sweeping views of the mountainsides, and the bold architectural style of the city's striking shrines and temples. Kyoto's wintertime allows you to see all the sights at your leisure, in a relaxed atmosphere that can not be enjoyed in any other season.
