Kyoto

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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, &more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Arashiyama, take in the spiritual surroundings of Koshojibetsuin Ryozenhobyo, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and stop by Gion.

For more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Kyoto travel route builder tool.

El Paso, USA to Kyoto is an approximately 22.5-hour flight. You'll lose 16 hours traveling from El Paso to Kyoto due to the time zone difference. While traveling from El Paso, expect little chillier days and about the same nights in Kyoto, ranging from highs of 62°F to lows of 48°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Fri) so you can catch the train to Hiroshima.
