Creative Kyoto

For more than a thousand years, Japan’s imperial capital Heian-kyo (also known as Miyako) was the arbiter of Japanese culture, an aesthetic matrix stimulating the evolution and flowering of the finest and subtlest arts. Now known as Kyoto, this city is revered for its “Living National Treasure” artisans with lineages of up to 15 or more generations of mastery, and equally noted for ongoing excellence and innovation in contemporary arts.
