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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dotonbori and Kon's Cycle, Takoyakushi. Visit Kinpusenji Temple and Mt. Kurama for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Hase-dera Temple (in Sakurai), Muroji Temple (in Uda) and Nara (Hayama Suzuran Gunraku, Toshodaiji Temple, & more). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Gion, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, steep yourself in history at Tofuku-ji Temple, and stroll through Nanzen-ji Temple.

To find maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Kyoto sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 29°C during the day and 17°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
