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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Pontocho and Nishi Honganji. Get some historical perspective at Ninna-ji Temple and Hachiman-bori. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Hikone Castle (in Hikone), Nara (Nara Park & Kasuga Grand Shrine) and Byodoin (in Uji). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, stroll through Kodai-ji Temple, and steep yourself in history at Sagano.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 29°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
