How to donate

 For over a millennium since its foundation as the imperial capital of Japan in 794, Kyoto has created new culture with no disruption to its urban functions. In this sense, Kyoto is an unparalleled city even from a global perspective.

 The city features a wide range of distinctive elements. One of them is its scenic and abundant natural environment, including the beautiful mountains surrounding it in three directions and clear streams of rivers, represented by the Kamo River and the Katsura River. The other features of Kyoto encompass sophisticated culture and industries that have long been nurtured in harmony with the natural environment; numerous cultural properties, including components of the World Heritage site; historic landscapes formed with shrines, temples and traditional Kyo-machiya (townhouses built in Kyoto’s traditional architectural style), and unique lifestyles. Citizens in Kyoto have handed down the enterprising spirit, always staying at the forefront of the age, as well as the spirit of pursuing honmamon (the genuine). Accordingly, Kyoto City is the home of many cultural elements and industries found in Japan today. In addition, Zen and other philosophies, artworks and craftworks refined in Kyoto have been a source of inspiration for leaders, business people, cultural figures, and many tourists from around the world.

 However, it has been becoming gradually more difficult to preserve and hand down these cultural elements and properties, traditional industries and townscapes amid rapid changes in the international situation and lifestyles. This challenge can no longer be tackled by Kyoto City alone. We hope that Kyoto will continue to fascinate people around the world and contribute to solutions to global issues and the promotion of peace with the wisdom and spirit of Kyoto. We also hope that Kyoto will welcome you with its enduring appeal if you visit the city someday.

 Please join us in our initiatives to conserve and cherish our nature, landscapes, and culture, and hand them down to future generations!
