Kyoto(京都市,Kyōto-shi, pronounced[kʲjoːꜜto.ɕi]; UK/kɪˈoʊtoʊ/, US/kiˈoʊ-/, or /ˈkjoʊ-/) is a city located in the central part of the island of Honshu, Japan. It has a population close to 1.5 million. Formerly the Imperial capital of Japan for more than one thousand years, it is now the capital city of Kyoto Prefecture located in the Kansai region, as well as a major part of the Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe metropolitan area. Kyoto is also known as the thousand-year capital.
In Japanese, the city has been called Kyō (京), Miyako (都), or Kyō no Miyako (京の都). In the 11th century, the city was renamed Kyoto ("capital city"), after the Chinese word for capital city, jingdu (京都). After the city of Edo was renamed Tokyo (meaning "Eastern Capital") in 1868, and the seat of the Emperor was transferred there, Kyoto was known for a short time as Saikyō (西京, meaning "Western Capital").
Obsolete spellings for the city's name include Kioto and Meaco. Another term commonly used to refer to the city in the pre-modern period was Keishi (京師), meaning "metropolis" or "capital".
The song received generally lukewarm reviews from music critics, with some criticizing its similarities to his previous material. Jon O'Brien from Allmusic said "Skrillex's lack of progression means there's a distinct sense of déjà vu among its seven tracks, particularly on the relentless, scattershot bleeps, chopped-up vocal hooks, and repetitive loops of opener "Right In" and the rap-metal fusion of "Kyoto"". Evan Rytlewski from The A.V. Club gave the song a mixed review, saying that it conveys "high drama without superfluous aggression", however, called it a "sub-Travis Barker stab at rap-rock". Kevin Vincenti from The Cavalier Daily gave the song a negative review, saying "The bland “Kyoto” is reminiscent of every other average electro-dance song, and it fails to show the genius of its creator".
