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 a sense of the local culture at Mint Museum and CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA. Appreciate the collections at Wakasa History Museum and Kyoto Railway Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Yanmar Museum (in Nagahama), Koji Kinutani Tenku Art Museum (in Osaka) and Eco Museum Sekigahara (in Sekigahara-cho). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Gion, go for a walk through Arashiyama, take an in-depth tour of Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sanjusangendo Temple.
