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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nishi Honganji and Eikando Zenrinji Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Universal Studios Japan (in Osaka), Amanohashidate (in Miyazu) and Hikone Castle (in Hikone). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, go for a walk through Gion, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

To find where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read Kyoto tour itinerary maker site.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Kyoto are 39°C, while nighttime lows are 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
