This has been spelled out over more than a thousand years as new people have visited and new events have occurred here.
The Kyoto International Film and Art Festival will be held here again this year.
The feel of this festival is expressed with the phrase“ upward and upward”, for the fresh surprises and excitement of the city of Kyoto where the festival is staged.
The scene is set for a strong impact which comfortably overturns the visual image of Kyoto.
