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 Nara Park and Monkey Park Iwatayama will get you outdoors. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Gion and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Mt. Wakakusa), Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution (in Kobe) and Osaka (Dotonbori & Osaka Castle). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, tour the pleasant surroundings at Katsura Imperial Villa, and explore the activities along Kamogawa River.

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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
