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.
Shop till you drop at Dotonbori and Fuuka-Kimono. Do some cultural sightseeing at Gion and Nijo Castle. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Kofuku-ji Temple, Nara Park, & more) and Osaka (Universal Studios Japan & Osaka Castle). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and don't miss a visit to Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

For ratings, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Kyoto trip itinerary maker website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In June, daily temperatures in Kyoto can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
