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.
Let the collections at CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA and Sekijuku Hatago Tamaya Historical Museum capture your imagination. Explore hidden gems such as Wakasa History Museum and Kyoto Railway Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Nara National Museum & Nara Park), Ichizo Kobayashi Memorial Museum (in Ikeda) and Yanmar Museum (in Nagahama). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, see the interesting displays at Kawasaki Good Times World, and appreciate the views at Arima Onsen.
