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.
Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Todai-ji Temple (in Nara) and Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Dotonbori, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, make a trip to Arashiyama, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.
