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 in touch with nature at Nara Park and Wakasa Wada Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Pontocho and Heian Shrine. When in Kyoto, make a side trip to see Kasuga Grand Shrine in Nara, approximately 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Ninna-ji Temple, explore the activities along Kamogawa River, take in the spiritual surroundings of Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple, and admire the natural beauty at Shugakuin Imperial Villa.

Start your trip to Kyoto by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport.
