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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Castle, & more) and Todai-ji Temple (in Nara). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Toji, make a trip to Heian Shrine, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.

To find traveler tips, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Kyoto travel planning site .

You can take a train from Tokyo to Kyoto in 3 hours. Other options are to fly; or drive. In April in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 22°C during the day and 11°C at night. On the 29th (Wed), you'll travel back home.
