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.
Get some historical perspective at Sanjusangendo Temple and Kiyomizu-dera. Get a sense of the local culture at Gion and Fushimi Inari Taisha. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Hozukyo Gorge (in Kameoka), Mukō Shrine (in Muko) and Uji (Byodoin, Uji River, & more). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, explore the world behind art at Kyoto National Museum, head outdoors with Arashiyama, and don't miss a visit to Nishiki Market.
