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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Omimaiko Beach (in Otsu), Nara (Nara City Museum of Art, Naramachi Koshino Ie, & more) and Iga-ryu Ninja Museum (in Iga). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Nijo-jo Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, and wander the streets of Gion.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Kyoto vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Kyoto can reach 33°C, while at night they dip to 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
