The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Kyoto is known for historic sites, shopping, and classes. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, make a trip to Nishiki Market Shopping District, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK to Kyoto is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Newcastle upon Tyne to Kyoto due to the time zone difference.
