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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Hikone Castle and Tanoura Beach. Get outdoors at Nara Park and Wakasa Wada Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Miyazu (Amanohashidate, Chion-ji Temple, & more), Kaizu Osaki (in Takashima) and Nara (Toshodaiji Temple & Todai-ji Temple). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, stroll through Shirahama Beach, explore the historical opulence of Nijo-jo Castle, and contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In August in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 39°C during the day and 29°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
