Nijo Castle, where the age of samurai ended.
You can enjoy seeing the arts, architecture, and culture through the visit to the secondary palace building.
Kinkakuji Temple, famous for its golden pavilion.
The villa of a powerful lord who wanted to express his power and wealth through his garden and pavilion.
Ryoanji Temple, famous for its dry rock garden.
A lot of things in Japanese culture are about symbolization or representation. You can enjoy a quiet peaceful atmosphere and try guessing what this garden is trying to express.
Yasaka Shrine is the top shrine of the Gion festival which is held every summer.
This is the Shinto shrine which worships a Shintoism god, the original religion of Japan. You can see the difference between the Buddhist temple, and the Shinto shrine.
Kiyomizu temple, famous for its big wooden stage built on an edge of a cliff, without using a single nail.
You can see the influence of Buddhism and the difference from the Shintoism. The path to this temple has many many shops where you can enjoy shopping souvenirs or tasting Japanese sweets, green tea and more.
Depends on train, bus, or taxi.
I recommend using a taxi if you want to avoid getting stuffed like sushi.
