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.
Gion and Fushimi Inari Taisha are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Nara (Nara Park, Kasuga Grand Shrine, & more), Suita (Expo '70 Commemorative Park & The Tower of the Sun) and Osaka (Osaka Castle, Museum of Oriental Ceramics, & more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kiyomizu-dera, don't miss a visit to Nishiki Market, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and take in the pleasant sights at Arashiyama.

To see ratings and tourist information, refer to the Kyoto trip planner .

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
