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 a sense of the local culture at Gion and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Do your shopping at Dotonbori and Kyoto Station Building. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Osaka (Osaka Castle & Universal Studios Japan) and Nara (Nara Park & Todai-ji Temple). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, go for a walk through Arashiyama, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Monkey Park Iwatayama.

To see reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Kyoto trip planner.

Osaka to Kyoto is an approximately half hour train ride. You can also drive; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 33°C in September, and nighttime lows around 23°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) so you can catch the train back home.
