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 Mt. Kurama and Arima Onsen. Get some historical perspective at Omiwa Shrine and Toshodaiji Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Nara (Kofuku-ji Temple, Nara National Museum, & more), Horyu-ji Temple (in Ikaruga-cho) and Minami (Namba) (in Namba). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jojakkoji Temple, and examine the collection at CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA.
