It's over 20 years since I was in Kyoto as part of a summer student programme. This is Japan's historic capital (until 1868) and was the home of the Genji Dynasty (1000 years ago). 36 hours here for the G8 Foreign Ministers' involves fleeting glimpses of the city and of Japanese life: a tea ceremony (ever heard of whisked green tea?), extreme courtesy and welcome to Westerners, no chances taken on policing the motorcade, and a city encircled by strikingly green woods.
