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.
Nijo Castle and Sanjusangendo Temple will appeal to history buffs. Gion and Nara Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Todaiji Temple Cultural Center (in Nara) and Dotonbori (in Osaka). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and make a trip to Eikando Zenrinji Temple.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Kyoto vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Boracay, Philippines to Kyoto is an approximately 10-hour combination of ferry, flight, and train. You can also do a combination of ferry, bus, flight, and train; or do a combination of ferry and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Boracay to Kyoto due to the time zone difference.
