Heritage

The sea has given birth to a variety of Japan’s most important cultural assets. The Kyoto by the Sea region is home to the businesses producing a majority of Kyoto’s finest silk, one of Japan’s four historic naval bases, Ine’s Edo era funaya (boat houses), and a collection of temples that range from the former Grand Shrine, temples on the 33-pilgrimage route through western Japan, and a rare temple with cat guardians.
