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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Nijo Castle and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Gion and Kinkaku-ji are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Nara Park) and Dotonbori (in Osaka). It doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sanjusangendo Temple.
