Since as far back as I can recall, I have been enchanted by Japan. Though I have never been there, it has such a rich culture, history, culinary traditions and just the right amount of kitsch. Located on the island of Honshu, Kyoto was once the imperial capital and in 1994 became an UNESCO heritage site.
These pictures of Kyoto in the Autumn shows the natural beauty. The rich red, gold and caramel of the leaves. In the spring you have the pretty pink Sakura (cherry blossom), Kyoto has seasonal delights. What could be more enchanting then enjoying some green tea and watching the stillness and glory of nature.
