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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nara Park and Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach. For shopping fun, head to Dotonbori or Kyoto WaGlass Gion Gallery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Kofuku-ji Temple National Treasure Hall, & more), Kobe (Takenaka Carpentry Tools Museum & Kawasaki Good Times World) and Kansai University Museum (in Suita). Spend the 26th (Sat) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. The adventure continues: take a stroll through Gion, explore the world behind art at Kyoto National Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, and see the interesting displays at Kyoto International Manga Museum.

If you are flying in from Mongolia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 1°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
