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.
Kids will enjoy Universal Studios Japan and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Hikone Castle and Toji. Venture out of the city with trips to Kasuga Grand Shrine (in Nara) and Tempozan Ferris Wheel (in Osaka). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Kyoto road trip tool .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in June, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
