Kyoto Imperial Palace: Beauty Hidden for a Thousand Years

In it's 1,000-year history, the Kyoto Imperial Palace was once Japan's center of power and home to emperors. Few are granted permission to the depths of the palace, but this program will take you on an exclusive tour of past and present, including the innermost chamber, where legendary treasures related to the founding of Japan were once enshrined. A highly-sensitive 4K camera was used to capture the palace's never before seen images, its hidden treasures and its seasonal beauty.
