"When I landed in Paris Airport I already had a message on my phone telling me that my driver had already arrived and, when I crossed the arrival's gates the driver was there, ready to pick me up and drive me to my destination!"

It is said in fact, that the city contains a over 1000 Buddhist temples! The changing season is something that is of particular significance to the Kyotoite population who celebrate the new growth of Spring, the cherry blossoms of Summer and the turning leaves of Autumn with full abandon. Local confectioners even create seasonal sweets in reflection of what is currently in bloom, and the city's famed Geisha change their hair ornaments 12 times a year in honor of these seasonal rhythms.
