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.
Explore hidden gems such as Nanzen-ji Temple and Tofuku-ji Temple. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, don't miss a visit to Eikando Zenrinji Temple, and contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine.
