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.
Shop till you drop at Kyoto Station Building and Shinkyogoku Shopping District. Visit Kiyomizu-dera and Fushimi Inari Taisha for their historical value. Step out of Kyoto with an excursion to Byodoin in Uji--about 42 minutes away. The adventure continues: take a stroll through Gion, steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple, and take in nature's colorful creations at Katsura Imperial Villa.
