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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Kyoto Station Building, Nishiki Market, Arashiyama, and other attractions you added. Here are some ideas for day two: get great views at Mt. Kurama, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kifune Shrine, steep yourself in history at Shugakuin Imperial Villa, then make a trip to Kawai Shrine, then steep yourself in history at Mikane Shrine, and finally admire the striking features of Jishu Shrine.

Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Kuchu Teien Observatory, Pokemon Center Osaka, Shin Umeda City, and other attractions you added. For shopping fun, head to Dotonbori or Minami (Namba). Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Nara Park and Museum of Oriental Ceramics. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Nara (Nigatsu-do Temple, Isuien Garden, & more), Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum (in Higashinada) and Kobe Harborland (in Kobe). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, make a trip to HEP FIVE観覧車, see the interesting displays at Osaka Museum of Housing and Living, and take a stroll through Shinsaibashi.
