Kyoto

— 9 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, &more), Himeji (Koko-en, Himeji Castle, &more) and Nara (Nara Park, Todai-ji Temple, &more). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and visit Dotombori District.
