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.
Appreciate the collections at Mint Museum and Wakasa History Museum. Get some historical perspective at Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Arima Onsen (in Kobe), Takarazuka City Historical Museum Old Wada House (in Takarazuka) and CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA (in Ikeda). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Kyoto Railway Museum, steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and explore the world behind art at Miho Museum.

To see reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Kyoto trip planning 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 April, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
