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.
Kyoto is known for historic sites, shopping, classes, parks, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, and take a stroll through Gion.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Kyoto trip itinerary planner .

Singapore, Singapore to Kyoto is an approximately 11-hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight, bus, and train. The time zone changes from Singapore Time to Japan Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Traveling from Singapore in October, expect Kyoto to be a bit cooler, temps between 27°C and 18°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) early enough to catch the train to Osaka.

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown) (in Chuo), Himeji (Koko-en Garden & Himeji Castle) and Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum (in Higashinada). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, stroll around Nara Park, explore the different monuments and memorials at Koyasan Okunoin, and explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle.

Osaka is just a stone's throw from Kyoto. In October in Osaka, expect temperatures between 26°C during the day and 17°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
