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.
Do your shopping at Nishiki Market Shopping District and Horando, Togetsukyo Honten. Get some cultural insight at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Gion. And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, see the interesting displays at Kyoto International Manga Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan.

In August, daily temperatures in Kyoto can reach 39°C, while at night they dip to 29°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
