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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Universal Studios Japan (in Konohana) and Osaka Castle (in Osaka). The adventure continues: make a trip to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji.
