Background: Kyoto was Japan's capital and the emperor's residence from 794 until 1868. It is now the country's 7th largest city. Over the centuries, Kyoto was destroyed by many wars and fires, but due to its historic value, the city was not chosen as a target of air raids during World War II. Countless temples, shrines and other historically priceless structures survive in the city today.
