You are invited to join Masaki “Makoon” Mori for a virtual tour of the city of Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan for over 1,000 years.

Embedded in centuries of history and culture, it offers too much to see in just one visit. Here the ancient world is integrated with the modern where the phenomenal concentration of history and legend coexists with an equal mass of people busily going about their everyday life.

On this tour, we will visit the eastern part of Kyoto called Higashiyama area. This iconic area is a city centre with a rich history, many preserved areas and hidden gems.

In just 50 minutes, you will capture the essence of Kyoto in this online get-together!

Tune in on Tuesday, July 12th at 22:00 CET (22:00 Zurich, 21:00 London, 16:00 New York),
