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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Mint Museum and Wakasa History Museum. Get some historical perspective at Nijo Castle and Kinkaku-ji. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA (in Ikeda), Omimaiko Beach (in Otsu) and Miho Museum (in Koka). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Kyoto Railway Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Eco Museum Sekigahara, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and take an in-depth tour of Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan.
