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.
Gion and Dotonbori are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Popular historic sites such as Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu-dera Temple are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Osaka (Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, Osaka Castle, & more), Minami (Namba) (in Namba) and Nara (Nigatsu-do Temple, Nara Park, & more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, make a trip to Nishiki Market, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, and take a stroll through Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street.

For photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Kyoto online sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in November, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
