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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, Gion and Kinkaku-ji. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, make a trip to Arashiyama, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, then take a stroll through Gion, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Koshojibetsuin Ryozenhobyo.

Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Kuromon Market, Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, Pokemon Center Osaka, and other attractions you added. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Takarazuka City Historical Museum Old Wada House (in Takarazuka), Himeji (Himeji Castle & Koko-en) and The Royal Grand Hall of Buddhism (in Kato). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, stroll around Kiminocho Kamifureai Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kofuku-ji Temple, and take a stroll through Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown).
