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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Spas and Koetsuji Temple. Discover out-of-the-way places like Gotemba Beach and Omimaiko Beach. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Hikone Castle (in Hikone), Byodoin (in Uji) and Hitomi Winery (in Higashiomi). And it doesn't end there: try to win big at Kyoto Horse Racetrack, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nishi Honganji, get to know the fascinating history of Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple, and admire the striking features of Kyoto Gion Post Office.
