This is from a series of films by Global Television shot all over world, giving well photographed introductions to various places, of which we will be focusing on the ones of interest to Buddhists.
The films are quite light introductions to their subjects, mainly good photography, well chosen soundtracks, and a reasonable, but sometimes inaccurate, narration giving a cultural and historical introduction to its subject.

Today’s episode visits some of the religious and cultural sites in Kyoto, which is known for its many beautiful temples, and for being the heart of Japanese culture.
We get an introduction to a number of the most famous temples, which are impressive for their solid woodwork and elegant decoration. We also visit one of the old palaces and a cultural quarter where we quickly see some shows that are still put on.
