Holidays in Kyoto

This area of Kyoto is populated by 1,500,000 residents.

Kyoto isn't too far away from Otsu, which is located 10 miles to the northeast. Tokyo, the nation's capital, is to be found 230 miles to the east.

If you've heard about Kyoto, you've heard of Nijo Castle and the Kiyomizu Temple. Why don't you seize the chance to check them out?

An outing to Iwatayama Monkey Park or Arashiyama Monkey Park is a perfect chance for a bit of quality family time. Kids still up for more? Don't stop yet. Keep them busy with a visit to Kyoto Studio Park and Omiyakotsu Park.

Take a journey underneath the ocean's surface and come face-to-face with some of the mysterious critters that dwell there at Kyoto Aquarium. The best bit? You won't even need to take your clothes off!

Are you kids curious about wildlife? Take them to the Kyoto Municipal Zoo, where they’ll learn about what an animal loves to eat, the sounds it makes and much, much more!

If you believe beer and man were meant to be, you should make your way to the Suntory Kyoto Brewery. The brewers' dedication to this delicious, golden drop can be sampled in every sip.

This area takes its plant conservation seriously, so there are a range of places where you can go and learn about botanic species from both local and international environments. A stroll through the well-kept gardens at the Kyoto Prefectural Botanical Gardens and the Zuihoin Garden is a must. For those travellers who are more committed, the Okochi Sanso and the Kyu Chikurinin Garden also have some unique floral exhibits.

There's no need to wander deep into the forest to appreciate a little greenery. The Byodoin Temple and Maruyama Park are just two of the impressive recreational spots you'll find amid this concrete jungle. Alternatively, head outdoors and get some exercise at Philosopher's Walk or the Shoseien Garden.

Whether you're after tours or tickets to an attraction, Kyoto Tourist Information Center is the place to go. Its dedicated team of local experts will ensure you get the most out of your time in Kyoto.

Appreciate the gorgeous views and the gentle sounds of moving water at the Shusuitei Tea House or Takaragaike Park. Don't forget to go and see the unique birdlife that live at Hoki Valley and Nakayama Pond either.

You probably know about its must-see shopping centres and museums, but don't forget that Kyoto has some spectacular natural havens too. Mount Atago and Yabasekihan Island Park are two to consider. For those who haven't quite had their fix, Mt. Hiei and Ponpon Mountain are two more worth visiting.

If you're seeking to learn a new thing or two or just escape a rainy day, the Kyoto International Manga Museum and the Costume Museum should be on your list. Ask about group tours or study the eye-opening exhibits on your own. Museum nerds should also check out the Kyoto National Museum and the Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts.

Science geeks will be right at home at the Otsu City Science Museum. Showcasing even more exciting leading-edge discoveries, the displays at Kyoto Municipal Science Center For Youth are sure to stimulate your inquisitive side.

Enhance your knowledge of the natural world when you stop by the Kyoto University Museum. With so much to learn and so many intriguing objects and specimens to check out, you might want to spend the whole day there!

In a destination filled to the brim with impressive art exhibitions, the Kyoto National Museum of Modern Art and the Hosomi Art Museum somehow manage to stand out from the rest. Also enquire about what exhibitions are on show at the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art and the Mount Hiei.

Calling all history fans! You can learn more about the vivid and varied past of this area at the Shigureden and the Kyoto Municipal Museum Of School History. The Ryozen Museum of History and the Oyamazaki Town Historical Museum are also worth a trip for an even greater insight into yesteryear.

Exploring important historical sights is a brilliant way to better understand times gone by. Sink your teeth into Kyoto's past at Kyoto Imperial Palace and Katsura Imperial Villa. Why not also check out the Kyoto University and the Doshisha University?

Take a moment to gaze at the water ebb and flow beneath Togetsukyo Bridge and Uji Bridge.

Many famous people have inhabited Sento Imperial Palace. From luxury decor to its impressive façade, this stately dwelling was designed to impress.

If you've ever dreamt of living like a king, a trip to Fushimi Castle should be towards the top of your travel agenda. Just as captivating, Kameyama Castle Ruins looks like it's leapt straight out of a fairytale book.

Whatever your beliefs, Fushimi Inari Shrine and Heian Shrine are great places to connect with your spiritual side. If you want to see even more, keep going to the Ryoanji Temple and the Toji Temple.

It's better to look over your life and say, "I can't believe I did that," instead of, "I wish I had done that." So, while you're here you shouldn't miss the chance to explore some of the less frequented sights, such as the Kaya No Sato Country and the Mt. Otokoyama Cable Car. You shouldn't miss the Kyoto Art Center and Shozan Resort Kyoto either.
