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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA and Yokkaichi-city Museum of History. Get some historical perspective at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Nijo Castle. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: The Little Indigo Museum (in Nantan), Wakasa History Museum (in Obama) and Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Nara National Museum). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Kyoto Railway Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, take an in-depth tour of Sekijuku Hatago Tamaya Historical Museum, and make a trip to Gion.

For where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Kyoto driving holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January, daily temperatures in Kyoto can reach 10°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
