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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Hikone Castle and Toji. Get outdoors at Tanoura Beach and Nara Park. When in Kyoto, make a side trip to see Wakasa Wada Beach in Takahama-cho, approximately 1h 35 min away. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sanjusangendo Temple, take a stroll through Gion, and don't miss a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

To see photos, maps, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Kyoto online trip builder .

If you are flying in from Argentina, 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 up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) so you can travel back home.
