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'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pontocho and Kennin-ji Temple. Your inner history buff will appreciate Ninna-ji Temple and Sagano. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Byodoin (in Uji) and Minami (Namba) (in Osaka). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, make a trip to Eikando Zenrinji Temple, steep yourself in history at Tofuku-ji Temple, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kodai-ji Temple.

To find ratings, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Kyoto trip planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 29°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
