Kyoto

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.
Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Nijo Castle will appeal to history buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Ryoanji Temple. Go for a jaunt from Kyoto to Dotombori to see Dotombori District about 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, and shop like a local with Nishiki Market Shopping District.

Start your trip to Kyoto by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Istanbul, Turkey to Kyoto is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Turkey Time to Japan Standard Time, which is usually a 6 hour difference.
