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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nanzen-ji Temple and Toji. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Kasuga Grand Shrine (in Nara) and Byodoin (in Uji). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, make a trip to Eikando Zenrinji Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

For where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Kyoto trip planner .
