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 list of things to see and do now includes Kozanji Temple, Kamigamo Shrine, Kurama Onsen, and other attractions. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Gion.

For more things to do, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Kyoto day trip planning tool .

Sydney, Australia to Kyoto is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Sydney to Kyoto due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Sydney in January, with highs in Kyoto at 10°C and lows at 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
