Kyoto is located on Honshu Island and once was the capital city of Japan. Development of architecture in Kyoto in the Heian Period during the Heian period (794-1185) and the period of the nationalist culture, the architectural style became more Japanese, with thin columns and low ceilings and a preference for peaceful spaces. From the Heian period onward, this style of architecture developed as a distinctly Japanese style.
