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.
Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Himeji Castle (in Himeji), Osaka (Osaka Castle, Dotonbori, &more) and Universal Studios Japan (in Konohana). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, go for a walk through Arashiyama, steep yourself in history at Heian Shrine, and don't miss a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

For where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read our Kyoto trip planning app .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Kyoto can reach 29°C, while at night they dip to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
