Kyoto

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 Kyu Mikamiye House and Shigeharu Cutlery. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Kanabiki Waterfall (in Miyazu), Byodoin (in Uji) and Hikone Castle (in Hikone). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kyorimbo Temple, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, contemplate the long history of Yasaka Shrine, and make a trip to Eikando Zenrinji Temple.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. February in Kyoto sees daily highs of 11°C and lows of 1°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
