Imperial Palace and Imperial Villa Top Page
Until the Edo period, the Kyoto Imperial Palace was the residence and government office of the emperor, who was a symbol of political and cultural authority.
Kyoto has been the center of Japan for nearly 1000 years as "Kyoto" (meaning "capital" in Japanese) because of the existence of the Imperial Palace.
The Imperial Palace and Imperial Villa, which embodies perhaps the most sophisticated Japanese beauty in traditional buildings and gardens.
To express each impression in one word, the Kyoto Imperial Palace is "grace", the Sento Imperial Palace is "elegant",
the Katsura Imperial Villa is "refined", and the Shugakuin Imperial Villa is "majestic".
The essence of Japanese culture is a delicate beauty that emphasizes the sense of the season, not the "Samurai" or "Harakiri".
