Driving Directions to
Kyoto (also Kyōto) is former capital of Japan and for more than a thousand years the centre of traditional Japanese culture and is still considered the Heart and Soul of traditional Japan. It is located 315 miles southwest of Tokyo and 25 miles east of Osaka. Several of the historic temples and gardens of Kyōto were collectively added as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1994.
Kyoto is a sophisticated blend of the ancient and the modern, an urban environment where museums, four star restaurants and active entertainment venues flourish alongside temples, small shops and quiet neighbourhoods.
Kyoto is what most travellers’ dream of when envisioning Japan.
This centre of innovation has a reputation for fostering leading research and the development of high technology firms. Kyoto has the highest percentage of academics per capita in Japan with over 40 universities and 50 research organizations. Most of Japan's Nobel Prizes have been awarded to researchers from Kyoto University.
With a proud cultural heritage and modern goals for the future, Kyoto is absolutely unique in Japan. Kyoto’s highlights include Fushimi Inari Shrine, the Gion geisha district, Arashiyama’s bamboo forest and the historic Higashiyama District. Kyoto is also a culinary centre, and for food lovers there is no better place to begin than “Kyoto’s Kitchen,” the colourful and boisterous Nishiki Market.
The venue for the 4th World Heart Congress is Kyoto as per the Suggestions of the Organizing Committee and Editorial Board.
