Kyoto is rich in nature and has many shrines, temples, and cultural assets. Many exquisite cultures and industries still exist in the city that have been developed over more than a thousand years, and you can see historical landscapes and Kyoto’s unique lifestyle rooted there. However, it is getting difficult for us to carry on passing down our traditions due to changing global circumstances and lifestyles. Preserving what Kyoto has maintained is no longer possible by ourselves alone.

The City of Kyoto hopes that the city’s historic treasures, which have supported the development of cultures and industries in Japan, will continue to attract and inspire people around the world. We would like to invite you to our programs to preserve Kyoto and pass it down to the next generation.

The following links show our initiatives, and the way donated funds are utilized. If you are able to help support us, please make a donation through the website.

We have also created pages on Facebook and Medium to communicate the attractiveness and values of Kyoto. Check them out to give us likes and follow us.



Currently, Kyoto City is working to make the city resilient, responding to various crises such as pandemics and disasters, and to promote sustainable tourism that is safe, secure, and environmentally friendly. We will do our best to ensure that you will be able to feel the essence of our wonderful city when you come to Kyoto. Until your next visit, we hope that our warm interactions will continue online.
