Kyoto has an infinity of temples, pavilions, gardens, palaces and thermae. It is best to get organized and make a “to do list” about what you would like to see. Reminder: Kyoto is quite big and it takes time to go from one place to another, and most attractions close around 5pm.
I was in love with Tokyo and decided to stay there the 10 days my boyfriend and I had to stay in the land of the rising sun. My sister-in-law, born in the Japanese capital, advised us to spare a few days in Kyoto – the most beautiful city in Japan, according to her and some Japanese friends we have. The disappointment was evident when I told people I preferred Tokyo over Kyoto.
