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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Ninna-ji Temple and Kennin-ji Temple. Heian Shrine and Sanzen-in Temple will appeal to history buffs. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Shimogamo Jinja, get great views at Sagano, contemplate the long history of Mt. Kurama, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Katsura Imperial Villa.
