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.
You've added Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Nishiki Market, Arashiyama, and other attractions to your itinerary. On the 23rd (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, then step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, then look for gifts at Teramachi-dori Street, and finally wander the streets of Gion.

To find photos, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Kyoto attractions planner .

Singapore, Singapore to Kyoto is an approximately 11-hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight, bus, and train. The time zone difference moving from Singapore Time (SGT) to Japan Standard Time (JST) is 1 hour. In February, Kyoto is much colder than Singapore - with highs of 11°C and lows of 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sun) so you can take a train to Kobe.

Walkable, small, and aesthetically charming, Kobe has served as Japan's first and premier international trading outpost since opening to trade with China in the mid-19th century.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Takenaka Carpentry Tools Museum, Chinatown (Nankinmachi), Kobe Motomachi Shopping Street, and other attractions you added. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the views at Arima Onsen, examine the collection at Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum, make a trip to Kobe Motomachi Shopping Street, then wander the streets of Chinatown (Nankinmachi), and finally don't miss a visit to Sannomiya Center Gai Shopping Street.

Plan my Kobe trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Kobe is very close to Kyoto. In February, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Tue) to allow enough time to drive to Naniwa.
