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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Nara Park, & more) and Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Castle, & more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, don't miss a visit to Gion, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

To find out how to plan a trip to Kyoto, use our trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In July in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
