Kyoto is considered the cultural capital of Japan and a major tourist destination. It is home to numerous Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, palaces and gardens, many of which are listed collectively by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Kyoto is a fantastic place to visit with children: it’s safe, clean and easy to get around. But it takes a bit of planning to keep your children happy – after all, not every child is a fan of Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.
Kyoto is the considered the safest city in Japan, since the crime levels are very low. It is one of the very few cities that are safe to walk at night and to travel on public transport, but the sensible precautions are necessary, as in any other major city.
There are lots of child-friendly attractions in Kyoto, as well as plenty of green spaces where you can take the kids to play. Here, I’ll discuss the main issues that concern parents traveling with children in Kyoto and then I’ll introduce my favourite child-friendly attractions, restaurants and accommodations in the city.
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.
