Kyoto

— 2 nights
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.
Visit Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kinkaku-ji for their historical value. Go for a jaunt from Kyoto to Nara to see Todai-ji Temple about 1 hour away. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.
