Kyoto is one of the most popular destinations in Japan now-a-days, as more and more people discover its attractions.
Avoiding big crowds is always a headache for travellers.
If you want to avoid annoying crowds, winter(January-Early March) might be best, as winter is Kyoto’s quietest season.
It is quite cold and the daylight hours will be shorter.
However, don’t be afraid, as the daytime temperature is still around 1-10C.
In winter, there is not much snow in Kyoto.
However, you might see its different face there.
Enjoy winter Kyoto!
