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.
Popular historic sites such as Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Kinkaku-ji are in your itinerary. Do your shopping at Dotonbori and Chinatown (Nankinmachi). Venture out of the city with trips to Osaka (Hankyu Umeda Gallery, Museum of Oriental Ceramics, & more), Minami (Namba) (in Namba) and Nara (Kofuku-ji Temple, Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, & more). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, wander the streets of Gion, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple.
