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.
Get some historical perspective at Nijo Castle and Sanjusangendo Temple. Gion and Nara Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Kofuku-ji Temple) and Osaka (Dotonbori, Osaka Castle, & more). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, make a trip to Nishiki Market, and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.

To see photos, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Kyoto trip itinerary planning tool .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. November in Kyoto sees daily highs of 19°C and lows of 10°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
