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.
Let the collections at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Kyoto International Manga Museum capture your imagination. Relax by the water at Kehi no Matsubara and Tanoura Beach. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Nara (Nara Park, Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, & more) and Dotonbori (in Osaka). Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Nijo-jo Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, wander the streets of Gion, and admire the masterpieces at Kyoto National Museum.
