Old Kyoto

Regular price $22.00

The essential guidebook for Kyoto, Old Kyoto focuses on the family establishments that have been in business for at least a hundred years, and in some cases for over ten generations. Astonishingly, many of the old shops and inns of Kyoto can still be found on narrow backstreets, under the heavy, tiled rooftops of traditional machiya dwellings. Diane Durston's guide also includes a brief history of the city, as well as crucial cultural details that make navigating the city easier for a first-time visitor.
