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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Kyoto International Manga Museum and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Take a break from the city and head to Nara Park and Mt. Wakakusa. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Uji (Uji River & Byodoin), Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center) and Osaka (Osaka Castle, Dotonbori, & more). The adventure continues: take some stellar pictures from Kiyomizu-dera Temple, examine the collection at Hikone Castle, get engrossed in the history at Kyoto National Museum, and stroll through Mt. Kurama.
