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.
Visit Nijo Castle and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine for their historical value. Shop till you drop at Dotonbori and Kyoto Station Building. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Castle, & more), Jindoji Temple (in Kizugawa) and Nara (Nara Park, Todai-ji Temple, & more). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, steep yourself in history at Kyoto Imperial Palace, don't miss a visit to Gion, and shop like a local with Nishiki Market.
