Kyoto and Tokyo 'have it all'

From modernistic architecture and technology to ancient culture, from a tourism perspective, Japan "has it all".

This is according to the Telegraph, which gave advice on where to eat and what to see when visiting the Japanese cities of Kyoto and Tokyo.

Kyoto is an ideal destination for travellers who wish to experience the ancient side to the country as it is home to seventeen World Culture Heritage Sites.

These include the Nijo Castle and the Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

Geisha's, tea ceremonies and the many gardens in the Japanese destination are also popular sights, the publication noted.

Tokyo was described as "a pleasure to travel in" and "the world leader in gourmet dining".

A visit to the Imperial Palace East Gardens and the Tsukiji Fish Market, was also suggested by the newspaper.

Kyoto is the seventh-largest city in Japan and was the capital city until 1868.

The emperor resided in the location until that date.
