Nurtured by over 1200 years of long, multifaceted history, Kyoto City has the beautiful scenery of nature and a peaceful urban landscape and is a traditional city where inherited and polished traditional culture still exists, which is rare worldwide. The City is also a modern metropolis home to 1.47 million people, and is an international cultural and tourist city where about 50 million tourists visit annually. Furthermore, it is also a "City that Creates the Future" with its progressive spirit and creative mind to constantly challenging new things while maintaining its tradition.
