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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Nara Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate Nijo-jo Castle and Kinkaku-ji. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Todaiji Temple Cultural Center (in Nara) and Dotonbori (in Osaka). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, make a trip to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple, and take a stroll through Gion.

For more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Kyoto trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 77°F in May, and nighttime lows around 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
