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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Gion and Nara Park. Take a break from the city and head to Monkey Park Iwatayama and Kamogawa River. Venture out of the city with trips to Osaka (Dotonbori & Osaka Castle), Disaster Reduction and Human Renovation Institution (in Kobe) and Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Mt. Wakakusa). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ginkaku-ji Temple, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and browse the different shops at Kyoto Station Building.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Thu) so you can travel back home.
