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 Kiyomizu-dera Temple for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Anrakuji (in Izu) and Todai-ji Temple (in Nara). And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and contemplate the long history of Osaka Castle.

To see maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, read our Kyoto trip itinerary planning tool.

In June, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
