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 1st (Sat), take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and then make a trip to Sannenzaka Ninenzaka. On the 2nd (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: wander the streets of Pontocho District, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, then take in the pleasant sights at Togetsukyo Bridge, then steep yourself in history at Ninna-ji Temple, and finally contemplate the long history of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Kyoto sightseeing tool.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Kyoto is an approximately 12-hour flight. The time zone changes from Western Indonesia Time (WIB) to Japan Standard Time (JST), which is usually a 2 hour difference. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Jakarta in June, with highs in Kyoto at 32°C and lows at 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel to Tokyo.

Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Mon): admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, then enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, then admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo City View Observation Deck (Roppongihills). Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: make a trip to Chidorigafuchi, then enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo International Airport (Haneda) Terminal No2 Observation Deck, then get answers to all your questions at Yokohama Intl Passenger Terminal, and finally admire the masterpieces at Tokyo National Museum.
