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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Nisonin, Jojakkoji Temple, Komyoji Temple, and other attractions you added. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Pontocho and Sanzen-in Temple. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Byodoin and Sagano. Step out of Kyoto to go to Otsu and see Ishiyamadera Temple, which is approximately 38 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Ninna-ji Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Nishi Honganji, take in panoramic vistas at Kyoto Tower, and snap pictures at Togetsukyo.

For photos, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Kyoto day trip tool .

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
