Kyoto was the historic capital of Japan and it has a reputation as one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Some of that beauty is hidden by urban sprawl and modern development but you can still find hidden gems like temples and parks spread throughout.

Like elsewhere in Japan, accommodation in Kyoto can be pricey, particularly during the peak Cherry Blossom season. Hostels offer some of the best budget options for backpackers and budget travelers visiting Kyoto. Hostels usually have a more social atmosphere and a variety of good amenities available as well.
