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.

There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and make a trip to Gion.
