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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Pontocho and Mt. Kurama. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Hikone Castle and Eikando Zenrinji Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Arima Onsen (in Kobe), CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA (in Ikeda) and Byodoin (in Uji). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Nara Park, admire the natural beauty at Nanzen-ji Temple, contemplate the waterfront views at Kamogawa River, and steep yourself in history at Tofuku-ji Temple.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Kyoto trip site .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in November, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
