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.
On the 3rd (Fri), get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan. On the 4th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: make a trip to Heian Shrine, then steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and then contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine.

For other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Kyoto online travel route planner .
