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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Amanohashidate and Wakasa Wada Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Shirahama Beach (in Takahama-cho), Miyazu (Kanabiki Waterfall, Kyu Mikamiye House, & more) and Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine, Nigatsu-do Temple, & more). And it doesn't end there: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, wander the streets of Gion, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple, and don't miss a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

To find ratings, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Kyoto trip planning app .

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 August in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 39°C during the day and 29°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
