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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Nara Park and Nijo Castle. Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan will appeal to museum buffs. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Mt. Wakakusa, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, examine the collection at Kyoto International Manga Museum, and don't miss a visit to Gion.

To see photos, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Kyoto road trip planner.

If you are flying in from Panama, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In April in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 11°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
