Kyoto

— 7 nights
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.
Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Nara Park), Duskin Honsha 2F Terrace (in Suita) and Thirteen Story Pagoda (in Kasagi-cho). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, shop like a local with Dotombori District, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sanjusangendo Temple.
