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 out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Todai-ji Temple (in Nara), Byodoin (in Uji) and Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Castle, & more). Spend the 1st (Mon) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, don't miss a visit to Gion, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple, and take in the pleasant sights at Arashiyama.
