Kyoto is a fascinating place. Formerly the imperial capital of Japan and famed for its cultural, gourmet and traditional crafts it continues to draw in visitors from near and far. We enjoyed Kyoto the most at nightfall. She lets some of secrets slip after dark.
Lovers, friends, frolickers and mischief makers meet in the shadows under Sanjo bridge. Teahouses glow invitingly. Back-streets create shadowy masks. Maiko flit from one place to another like butterflies in the night.
