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.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Fri): make a trip to Heian Shrine, contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera Temple. On your second day here, take a stroll through Gion, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Eikando Zenrinji Temple.

To see where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Kyoto day trip planning site .
