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.
Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Amore Beach (in Akashi), Himeji (Himeji Castle & Koko-en Garden) and Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, & more). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple, go for a walk through Arashiyama, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.
