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 Bamboo Forest Street, Arashiyama, Nishiki Market Shopping District, and other attractions you added. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, don't miss a visit to Gion, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

To find photos, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Kyoto tour website .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Osaka International Airport, Kansai International Airport and Chubu Centrair International Airport. In December in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 13°C during the day and 4°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 13th (Fri) to allow enough time to take a train back home.
