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.
Attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Nijo Castle make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan (in Osaka) and Dotombori District (in Dotombori). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, take in nature's colorful creations at Keishuin Garden, and visit Gion.

For where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Kyoto day trip site.
