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.
Visiting Amanohashidate and Nara Park will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will appreciate CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA and Kyoto National Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Nara National Museum), Higashinada (Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum & Kobe Connection Art Museum) and Osaka (Dotonbori, Museum of Oriental Ceramics, & more). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Gion, examine the collection at Kyoto International Manga Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and admire the masterpieces at The Little Indigo Museum.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
