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.
Let the collections at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Todaiji Temple Cultural Center capture your imagination. Visiting Nara Park and Kyoto Isshu Trail Higashiyama Course will get you outdoors. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Miho Museum (in Koka), Sakunado Shrine (in Otsu) and Asahiyaki (in Uji). Spend the 19th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, get engrossed in the history at Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and wander the streets of Gion.
