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 Dotombori are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Nijo Castle will appeal to history buffs. When in Kyoto, make a side trip to see Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan in Osaka, approximately Osaka away. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Gion, contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, and don't miss a visit to Heian Shrine.
