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 out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Kuromon Market (in Nippombashi), Ibomizu Isora Shrine (in Ibaraki) and Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine, Nigatsu-do Temple, & more). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple.
