Kyoto
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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nara Park and Mt. Wakakusa. Popular historic sites such as Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Sanjusangendo Temple are in your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Kasuga Grand Shrine). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Gion, find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Kyoto trip maker .

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In January, daytime highs in Kyoto are 10°C, while nighttime lows are 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
