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 Arashiyama to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 3rd (Wed): stroll through Philosopher's Walk, then explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, and then steep yourself in history at Sanjusangendo Temple. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 4th (Thu): take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji and then head outdoors with Arashiyama.
