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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Tofuku-ji Temple. Get some historical perspective at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Jojakkoji Temple. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Eikando Zenrinji Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Toji, admire the landmark architecture of Chishaku-in, and get to know the fascinating history of Kyoto Gyoen National Garden.
