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.
Visit Nijo Castle and Kinkaku-ji for their historical value. Mint Museum and Kyoto Railway Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA (in Ikeda), Eco Museum Sekigahara (in Sekigahara-cho) and Museum of Oriental Ceramics (in Osaka). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Wakasa History Museum, gain insight with Kyoto Free Walking Tour, take in the awesome beauty at Mt. Takao, and explore the world behind art at Forever Museum of Contemporary Art.
