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 some cultural insight at Mint Museum and Gion. Your inner history buff will appreciate Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Kaizu Osaki (in Takashima), Yanmar Museum (in Nagahama) and CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA (in Ikeda). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Wakasa History Museum, examine the collection at Museum of Oriental Ceramics, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and identify plant and animal life at Nara Park.

For photos, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Kyoto road trip site .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In March, daytime highs in Kyoto are 16°C, while nighttime lows are 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
