Miyazu

Though home to one of Japan's long-admired "three views," few people know Miyazu by name.
On the 18th (Sat), pause for some serene contemplation at Miyazu Catholic Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Wakinomiya Shrine, take in the dramatic scenery at Kanabiki Waterfall, then don't miss a visit to Kyu Mikamiye House, and finally snap pictures at Yura River Bridge.

For ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Miyazu itinerary planner.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Miyazu is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Miyazu. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Kuala Lumpur in May, with highs in Miyazu at 26°C and lows at 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to go by car to 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.
On the 19th (Sun), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Shimogamo Jinja, then admire the natural beauty at Kyoto Botanical Garden, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kennin-ji Temple. On the 20th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: steep yourself in history at Heian Shrine, steep yourself in history at Keage Incline, and then take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

For reviews and other tourist information, refer to the Kyoto tour planner .

Getting from Miyazu to Kyoto by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a train; or take a bus. In May in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 29°C during the day and 17°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 21st (Tue) to allow time for travel back home.
