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.
Kyoto Kimono Rental Rei has been added to your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Universal Studios Japan in Konohana (about 1h 15 min away). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and go for a walk through Arashiyama.

For more things to do, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Kyoto day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Kyoto are 13°C, while nighttime lows are 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
