Summary

Over a thousand years old, Kyoto is a city of many layers that are often simultaneously exposed like the geological formations in a long-weathered cliff. This book is a collection of personal encounters, moments, and scenes of Kyoto that have touched the author through the years. Duotone photographs of temples, landscapes, gardens, and people represent an essential vocabulary of Kyoto that has evolved over centuries through the interplay of culture, climate, and topography. This collection includes contributions by leading Kyoto writers Marc Peter Keane, Edith Shiffert, Diane Durston, and Preston Houser.
