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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Eikando Zenrinji Temple and Tenryuji Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Suzuka Circuit (in Suzuka), Horyu-ji Temple (in Ikaruga-cho) and Osaka (Food Tours, Umeda Sky Building, & more). There's lots more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Nanzen-ji Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Toji, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and steep yourself in history at Tofuku-ji Temple.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Kyoto travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
