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.
Visiting Nara Park and Takenami Beach will get you outdoors. Visit Ashiya Comprehensive Park Ashiya Beach and Kaizu Osaki for some beach relaxation. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Ikeda (CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA, Itsuo Art Museum, & more), Suita (National Museum of Ethnology & Expo'70 Pavilion) and Nara (Kasuga Taisha Museum, Kasuga Grand Shrine, & more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, wander the streets of Gion, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and examine the collection at Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum.
