I took this photo near the Kyoto Imperial Palace. Kyoto was the capital of Japan for a very long time period from 794 to 1868. I have spend many days exploring my favourite city in the country. A city with such a rich historical background and full of UNESCO World Heritage sites like Kinkaku-ji, Kiyomizu-dera, Ginkaku-ji, Nijo Castle or Ryoan-ji never ceased to amaze me.
