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.
You've now added Kodai-ji Temple to your itinerary. Step out of Kyoto to go to Osaka and see Universal Studios Japan, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji.

For maps, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, read Kyoto trip planner .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
