Kyoto

Kyoto ©
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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Nijo Castle. Kinkaku-ji and Kiyomizu-dera Temple will appeal to history buffs. When in Kyoto, make a side trip to see Dotombori District in Dotombori, approximately Dotombori away. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tofuku-ji Temple, take in the pleasant sights at Gion, and steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple.

For other places to visit, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, use the Kyoto online travel planner.

Boracay, Philippines to Kyoto is an approximately 11-hour combination of ferry and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Boracay to Kyoto.
