Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kyoto: Nara (Kofuku-ji Temple, Nara Park, & more) and Osaka (Universal Studios Japan & Osaka Castle). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Gion, contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple.
