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.
Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kinkaku-ji are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Nara Park and Mt. Takao. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Osaka (Osaka Castle & Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum), Mt. Koya (in Koya-cho) and Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Todai-ji Temple). There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Kyoto National Museum, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple, and take a stroll through Gion.

For photos, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Kyoto trip itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In October in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 27°C during the day and 18°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
