Renowned for its blossoming cherry trees, countless shrines and temples, and traditional architecture, Kyoto is one of Japan’s top travel destinations. Its bountiful beauty has been captured in a seemingly infinite amount of photos, but one picture-perfect snapshot has left the Internet in awe. Captured by photographer Leslie Taylor, the stunning photo of Kyoto presents the city’s undeniable beauty.

Recently posted on Reddit, the now-viral photograph depicts a calm, cobblestoned street leading to the famous 5-story Yasaka Pagoda. Silhouetted against the soft pinks, blues, and oranges of the sunset, the landmark looms above the shops and stalls of the historic Higashiyama District—which, as any Kyoto resident can confirm, is normally bustling with tourists and shoppers. Somehow, Taylor has experienced the hotspot during a moment of tranquility, which he communicates through his stunning, softly-lit photograph.

Taylor, who specializes in landscape and travel photography, has called Japan home for 5 years. During his time in Japan, he has built up a beautiful portfolio of sites sprawled across the country. His growing portfolio of images can be viewed on Instagram.

In addition to his celebrated photo of Kyoto, Leslie Taylor has captured many more stunning shots of the city.
