Kyoto is a must visit if you come to Japan. In Kyoto you can find some modern buiding (eg Kyoto station) and old temples. But you can enjoy it.

Shrines and temples

There are a lot of shrines and temples in Kyoto. But not all the shrines are valuable to visit. I list some good shrines to visit:
1. Kinkakuji (gold shrine)
2. Kiyomizudera
3. Ryoanji
4. Ginkakuji
5. Sanjusangendo (actually I feel bad when visit this place)

I think no 1 and 2 are a must visit. Others you can visit if you have time.


Usually there are some souvenir shops close to the main shrines. You also can find some souvenir shops at Gion or Arashiyama.
