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.
Get some historical perspective at Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Shop till you drop at Dotonbori and Hankyu Umeda Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Nigatsu-do Temple, & more), Osaka (Osaka Castle, Mint Museum, & more) and Higashinada (Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum & Kobe Fashion Museum). Spend the 9th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. The adventure continues: wander the streets of Gion, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, get engrossed in the history at Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, and examine the collection at Kyoto International Manga Museum.
