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.
Head to Dotonbori and Shinsaibashifor some retail therapy. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Gion and Nara Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Kuromon Market (in Nippombashi) and Nara (Mt. Wakakusa, Todai-ji Temple, & more). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, make a trip to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan.
