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.
Appreciate the collections at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Hikone Castle. Sanjusangendo Temple and Nijo Castle are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Osaka (Kuromon Ichiba Market, Osaka Castle, & more), Kobe (Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, Chinatown (Nankinmachi), & more) and Nara (Mt. Wakakusa, Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, & more). There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Kiyomizu-dera, kick back and relax at Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ginkaku-ji Temple, and examine the collection at Kyoto International Manga Museum.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Kyoto trip builder.

If you are flying in from Taiwan, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In November, daytime highs in Kyoto are 19°C, while nighttime lows are 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
