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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Kinkaku-ji, Geisha and Maiko Makeover Experience in Kyoto Gion Aya, Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, and other attractions. Kick off your visit on the 21st (Fri): stroll around Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, meet the residents at Monkey Park Iwatayama, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, then wander the streets of Gion, and finally get your game on at Geisha and Maiko Makeover Experience in Kyoto Gion Aya.
