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.
Popular historic sites such as Nijo-jo Castle and Kinkaku-ji are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Nara Park and Kyoto Fun. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate the long history of Heian Shrine, take a stroll through Dotonbori, and make a trip to Gion.

To see maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Kyoto holiday builder .

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In September, daytime highs in Kyoto are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
