Ski surrounded by the Italian Dolomites' jagged peaks. Departures December through to February.
For more than a thousand years, Kyoto was the capital of Japan, and this long period at the centre of imperial life has left the city with countless temples and shrines as well as an impressive royal palace. It is still at the heart of religious life in Japan, and is perhaps the best place to sample traditional Buddhist cuisine.
Kyoto's mix of ancient and modern is what truly delights most visitors - one moment you could be rubbing shoulders with apprentice Geisha in the winding streets of the Gion district, and the next you could be facing a sensory overload of neon lights and the latest technology in the modern downtown area.
See below for a great range of small group holidays which visit Kyoto.
