It's not much of a surprise that Kyoto is the most popular place in Japan during cherry blossom season. The image of classical Japan, Kyoto was Japan's capital for over 1,000 years, taking over from Nara in the 8th century and replaced by Tokyo in the 19th. The city has learned the art of balancing its incredibly old, rich culture (17 sites are listed as UNESCO World Heritage here) with the contemporary world, meaning you can explore anything from ancient Buddhist temples and elaborate palaces to the art of manga and nouveau cuisine. Long a centre of religion, culture, food and art, it is in the quiet backstreets and tranquil temples that Kyoto's traditional soul dwells - hurrying between engagements with the flawless geisha, in the tea ceremony or in the quiet contemplation of a zen garden - whilst it can be easy to miss, it's also easy to find.

During cherry blossom season (sakura) Kamo River is lined with cherry blossoms and so is a beautiful walk, and the Imperial Palace Park has cherry blossoms throughout. Stroll the Philosopher's Path for more cherry blossom action (the whole path is lined with them) as well as hidden shrines and temples.
