Satellite view showing Kyoto, capital city of Kyoto Prefecture in Japan. The city is located at the foot of Mount Atago in the Kansai region, nestling in a valley in the eastern part of a mountainous landscape known as the Tamba highlands in the central part of the island of Honshu, Japan's largest and most populous island.
Kyoto was the center of Japanese culture for more than 1,000 years. The city is famous for literally thousands of Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, among them the Enryaku-ji Temple complex, a Tendai monastery located on Mount Hiei, and To-ji Temple (Tō-ji), the East Temple, are two of the most prominent examples of Buddhist tradition.
