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 find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Kuchu Teien Observatory (in Kita), Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, Kasuga Grand Shrine, & more) and Kobe (Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution & Fukadaike Park). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Gion, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.

For reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Kyoto day trip website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. August in Kyoto sees daily highs of 92°F and lows of 77°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
