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've added Monkey Park Iwatayama, Tenryuji Temple, Bamboo Forest Street, and other attractions to your itinerary. And it doesn't end there: take some stellar pictures from Kiyomizu-dera, take a stroll through Gion, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, and steep yourself in history at Heian Shrine.

To find ratings, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Kyoto trip itinerary builder.

Singapore, Singapore to Kyoto is an approximately 11-hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of car and ferry.

Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Shinsekai, Shinsaibashi and Osaka Castle Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Naramachi, Tōdai-ji, & more). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, shop like a local with Dotonbori, and examine the collection at Museum of Oriental Ceramics.

To find reviews and other tourist information, go to the Osaka travel itinerary planner.

Osaka is just a short distance from Kyoto. In October in Osaka, expect temperatures between 27°C during the day and 17°C at night. On the 23rd (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
