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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Toji and Kennin-ji Temple. Do some cultural sightseeing at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Arashiyama. Venture out of the city with trips to Dotombori District (in Dotombori) and Todai-ji Temple (in Nara). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, visit Gion, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji.
