Product Details


“The recommended establishments in Old Kyoto are so consistently good…and Diane Durston has woven history and legend into her descriptions of Kyoto’s finest and oldest establishments.” —The New York Times

“Diane Durston … leads us into the secrets and hidden beauties of the city with a grace and warmth that are themselves reflective of the vanishing traditions they celevrate. Whenever anyone says he or she wants to see the ‘true soul of Kyoto,’ I say, ‘Buy this book!'” —Pico Iyer

“The wonder is that no one has done what Diane Durston has done, and the delight is that Diane Durston has done it so well.” —The Japan Times

“Durston’s book is an eloquent look at seven neighborhoods where everyday life in Japan continues despite the crush of modernity….” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“This lovingly written travelogue-cumgudebook has become de rigueur for knowledgeable travelers seeking to find ‘the real Kyoto’.” —Rafu Shimpo
