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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tempozan Ferris Wheel and Sanzen-in Temple. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Horyu-ji Temple (in Ikaruga-cho), Osaka (Food Tours, Umeda Sky Building, &more) and Suzuka Circuit (in Suzuka). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tenryuji Temple, examine the collection at Kyoto Railway Museum, don't miss a visit to Sannenzaka Ninenzaka, and take in the dramatic scenery at Akame Shijuhachi Waterfall.

To find maps, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Kyoto travel planner.

September in Kyoto sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 23°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
