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.
Change things up with a short trip to Universal Studios Japan in Osaka (about 1h 15 min away). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, hike along Kyoto Isshu Trail, Higahiyama Fuahimi Inari Course, and make a trip to Nijo Castle.
