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.
Family-friendly places like Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine will thrill your kids.

There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, contemplate the long history of Osaka Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple, and trek along Kyoto Isshu Trail, Higahiyama Fuahimi Inari Course.
