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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Nara Park and Gion. Visiting Monkey Park Iwatayama and Mt. Yoshino will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Osaka (Dotonbori, Universal Studios Japan, & more), Nara (Kasuga Grand Shrine, Nigatsu-do Temple, & more) and Uji (Asahiyaki & Byodoin). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, go for a walk through Philosopher's Walk, contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and make a trip to Arashiyama.
