If you are in Kyoto now, go to the underground shopping/dining center called “Porta”. Porta is the underground section of JR Kyoto Station.
There will be an area where the artworks about Kyoto created by a famous illustrator, Kenji Inagaki, will be displayed. It is a good idea to see Kyoto through beautiful illustrations after or before visiting the actual spots.
You can see his works from 11:00 – 19:00 (17:00 for the final day) during August 30th to January 11th. And it is FREE.
If you are hungry, let’s check out the dining area of the Porta as well.
Or if you rather want to read the guidebook on your Kindle e-book reader or application, then get our Kyoto e-Guidebook on Amazon instead.
