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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Nishiki Market Shopping District, Ginkakuji Temple and Ryoanji Temple. Change things up with a short trip to Universal Studios Japan in Osaka (about 1h 15 min away). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Daiho-In Hall, wander the streets of Gion, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.

For maps, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Kyoto travel route builder tool .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 23°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can catch the train back home.
