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 is known for historic sites, shopping, classes, parks, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Jishu Shrine, make a trip to Heian Shrine, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Kyoto can reach 67°F, while at night they dip to 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
