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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Mimurotoji Temple and Toshodaiji Temple. Get some cultural insight at Hase-dera Temple and Horyu-ji Temple. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Byodoin (in Uji) and Suntory Yamazaki Distillery (in Shimamoto-cho). There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nishi Honganji, wander the streets of Gion, and steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

For reviews, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Kyoto trip itinerary planning tool .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. August in Kyoto sees daily highs of 39°C and lows of 29°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
