Kyoto

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 9th (Wed), contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and then don't miss a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple. On the 10th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire the striking features of Kyutei Omuro, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, then explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, and finally get a taste of the local shopping with Nishiki Market Shopping District.
