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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Nijo Castle and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Get outdoors at Nara Park and Kaizu Osaki. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA (in Ikeda), Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Toshodaiji Temple) and Arima Onsen (in Kobe). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Gion, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, take an in-depth tour of Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, and examine the collection at Kyoto International Manga Museum.
