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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Tenryuji Temple and Toji. Visit Nanzen-ji Temple and Eikando Zenrinji Temple for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Ise (Ise Shrine Geku & Oharai-machi), Nango Suisan Center (in Otsu) and Horyu-ji Temple (in Ikaruga-cho). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kennin-ji Temple, steep yourself in history at Tofuku-ji Temple, make a trip to Koyasan Danjo Garan, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Koyasan Okunoin.

To see reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Kyoto trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 74°F in October, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
