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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Gion and Nijo-jo Castle. Your inner history buff will appreciate Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Kinkaku-ji. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, stroll through Kyoto Imperial Palace, and take a stroll through Pontocho.

For maps and tourist information, you can read our Kyoto travel planner.
