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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Koyasan Okunoin and Suzuka Circuit. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Amanohashidate (in Miyazu), Mt. Rokko (in Higashinada) and Kids Plaza Osaka (in Kita). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Ibuki, admire the verdant scenery at Arima Onsen, take some stellar pictures from Mt. Kurama, and admire the natural beauty at Kobe Oji Zoo.

To find maps, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Kyoto trip website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In July in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 89°F during the day and 76°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
