Kyoto — 6 nights

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Dotombori District (in Dotombori), Osaka (Room Escape Games, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, &more) and Kuromon Market (in Nippombashi). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, visit Gion, browse the eclectic array of goods at Nishiki Market Shopping District, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.

To see ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Kyoto holiday maker site.

Land of the Rising Sun
Part of a volcanic archipelago that encompasses over 6,800 islands, Japan remains one of Asia's most fascinating tourist destinations, where a blend of modernity and tradition creates a look and feel completely different from any other place in the world. A tour of Japan lets you discover big cities filled with ancient temples and innovative skyscrapers, as well as quiet country landscapes dotted with castles, perfectly manicured gardens, cherry orchards, and primeval forests seemingly untouched by the hand of mass tourism. Many tourists on vacation in Japan devote lots of time to the country's unique cuisine, prepared with painstaking attention to detail and a genius for simple yet effective presentation.
