Japan Things to Do: 736 reviews and 1,308 photos

 
 

Kyoto is my favourite place in Japan. It is one of those lucky cities (Nara as well) spared from US bombing in WWII, that?s why visitors can still experience the real, old Japanese atmosphere and historical places here. Kyoto is a city got it all, not only has 17 world heritage sites, such as temples and castles, but also the real Geishas, traditional food markets, great shopping and all kind of culture courses.
In addition, you could use Kyoto as a base; make day trips to Kobe, Nara or Osaka.

17 sites listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list:
