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 a sense of the local culture at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Take a break from the city and head to Nara Park and Amanohashidate. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Dotombori (in Dotombori), Wakasa Wada Beach (in Takahama-cho) and Hikone Castle (in Hikone). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple, pause for some photo ops at Todai-ji Temple, and stop by Gion.

To see photos, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Kyoto travel planner.

Expect a daytime high around 39°C in August, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
