(Other definitions for kyoto that I've seen before include "Former Japanese capital city - Tokyo (anag)" , "Japanese city of treaty on climate change" , "Japan's old capital" , "Tokyo (anag) - former capital of Japan" , "City of agreement on global warming" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
