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 Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gion and Kinkaku-ji. Step out of Kyoto to go to Nara and see Nara Park, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, learn something new at Haru Cooking Class, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ginkaku-ji Temple, and admire the landmark architecture of Jishu Shrine.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
