Last year Chris Rowthorn, of Lonely Planet fame, gave his personal website, Inside Kyoto a complete revamp. And what a transformation! Inside Kyoto has become an indispensable resource for anyone, whether visiting Kyoto or resident here. If you are looking for places to stay, places to eat, transport information or touring itineraries – it is all there! Basically, Chris has created a free online guidebook to the city. Need help finding your way around? Check the Inside Kyoto map. Wondering when to book your trip? Inside Kyoto has the answers. A long term resident of Kyoto himself, Chris, knows this city inside out, and now he has given all that knowledge away – for free. Check out the blog also, for the latest news from Kyoto, including the excellent monthly events listings. I recommend signing up for the Inside Kyoto newsletter (at the bottom of the homepage) so you don’t miss out on this. You can also follow Inside Kyoto on Twitter and Facebook.
OK. Now go visit the website and see what you can find: http://www.insidekyoto.com/
