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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tenryuji Temple and Toji. Your inner history buff will appreciate Kinkaku-ji and Kasuga Grand Shrine. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Nigatsu-do Temple (in Nara), Himeji Castle (in Himeji) and Hikone Castle (in Hikone). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Daigo-ji Temple, steep yourself in history at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, stop by Gion, and don't miss a visit to Koyasan Danjo Garan.

For maps and other tourist information, you can read our Kyoto road trip website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. April in Kyoto sees daily highs of 67°F and lows of 50°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
