Visit Kyoto in the past

Leave a comment

Kyoto, ancient capital of Japan, can now be explored through the Heiankyo Overlay Map, which allows users to shift from the current plan of the city back to the Heian era (9th century) city, and back.


The map is in Japanese – but it sure is a wonderful tool for history buffs… and writers!
