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 Kiyomizu-dera Temple are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Nijo Castle and Ryoanji Temple will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Dotombori District (in Dotombori) and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan (in Osaka). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Gion, contemplate the long history of Tofuku-ji Temple, don't miss a visit to Heian Shrine, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple.
