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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Nara Park and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. For shopping fun, head to Dotonbori or Nishiki Market. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Nara (Nigatsu-do Temple, Kasuga Grand Shrine, & more), Seta Golf Course North Course (in Otsu) and Osaka (Osaka Castle, Museum of Oriental Ceramics, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, admire the landmark architecture of Kyoto Station Building, wander the streets of Gion, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

To see photos, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Kyoto trip planner .

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 29°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
