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 a sense of the local culture at Gion and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Dotonbori and Nishiki Market. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Byodoin (in Uji), Ine no Funaya (in Ine-cho) and Amanohashidate (in Miyazu). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, and don't miss a visit to Eikando Zenrinji Temple.

November in Kyoto sees daily highs of 19°C and lows of 10°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
