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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Gion and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hikone Castle and Tenryuji Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Tomorogi Shrine (in Neyagawa), Osaka (Osaka Castle, Dotonbori, & more) and Nara (Kofuku-ji Temple, Kasuga Grand Shrine, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, admire the natural beauty at Nanzen-ji Temple, make a trip to Byodoin, and contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine.
