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.
Change things up with a short trip to Byodoin in Uji (about 42 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: take some stellar pictures from Kiyomizu-dera, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sanjusangendo Temple, don't miss a visit to Gion, and get outside with Arashiyama.

To find more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Kyoto travel itinerary planner.

San Francisco, USA to Kyoto is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and train. Traveling from San Francisco to Kyoto, you'll lose 17 hours due to the time zone difference.
