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 Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution (in Kobe), Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Tempozan Ferris Wheel, & more) and Nara (Tōdai-ji, Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, & more). There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Kiyomizu-dera, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari Taisha, and go for a walk through Arashiyama.

To find where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, use the Kyoto trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Kyoto are 13°C, while nighttime lows are 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
