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, Maiko and Geisha Makeover Experience in Kyoto Gion Aya, Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, and other attractions. On the 21st (Fri), take a peaceful walk through Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Monkey Park Iwatayama, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, then wander the streets of Gion, and finally hit the best photo ops around with Maiko and Geisha Makeover Experience in Kyoto Gion Aya. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, then steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, then examine the collection at Kyoto International Manga Museum, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Sanjusangendo Temple.
