For those considering visiting Japan, The News-Review has a good article on Tokyo and Kyoto.
For modern Japan, Tokyo is the place to visit. For history and culture, Kyoto is the place to go.
Japan is a great choice for travelers who have Asia on their bucket list. It’s a relatively small country with a high-speed train network that makes it easy to cover a lot of ground in a short period of time.
Tokyo, the bustling, cosmopolitan capital, will be your entrée to modern Japan, while Kyoto, the former imperial capital, will immerse you in the country’s ancient history and culture.
