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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Hikone Castle and Gion. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Tanoura Beach and Wakasa Wada Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Nara Park (in Nara) and Universal Studios Japan (in Osaka). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Nijo-jo Castle, steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Toji.

To see other places to visit, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, read Kyoto trip tool .

In May, daily temperatures in Kyoto can reach 29°C, while at night they dip to 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
