Kyoto Vacation Packages

Places to Visit in Kyoto

Almost ready to head off on your Kyoto vacation? Can't work out what things to include in your travel schedule? No need to stress — we'll give you some suggestions.

You'll find lots of amazing things to see in Kyoto. Famed attractions such as Nijo Castle and the Kiyomizu Temple ensure this will be a vacation that'll be etched in your memory forever.

Boasting tourist attractions such as Fushimi Inari Shrine and Katsura Imperial Villa, there's never a boring moment in this exciting city. Once you're done having a look at those, continue in the direction of Heian Shrine and the Ryoanji Temple.

A range of powerful people have resided in Kyoto Imperial Palace throughout the years. If you've ever daydreamed about living like aristocracy, be sure to visit this stately building. Adventurers in this destination have an abundance of choice. Theater can challenge the way we think and asks us to aspire to higher things. See a production at Gion Corner and open your mind to some big ideas. Still have time to spare? Constructed to pay homage to the gods, temples afford visitors an intriguing look into another religion and culture. Learn about the local belief system as you wander around the sacred monument of Toji Temple.

Kyoto Accommodations

Securing comfortable places to stay is half the battle won when organizing luxury getaways or cheap vacations. Luckily, Kyoto has around 344 accommodations, so you'll be spoilt for choice.

Fluffy robes, deep bathtubs and high-quality furnishings are just a few of the things you should find waiting for you at The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto (Kamogawa Nijo-Ohashi Hotori, Nakagyo-ku) and the Nazuna Kyoto Nijo-tei ~Service&Dedication~ (580, Kusuriyacho). Book now for a taste of luxury! If you'd rather spend your hard-earned money on things such as hair-raising adventures and wild nightlife, why not investigate some of our low-price options? The Ryokan Yoshida-sanso (59-1 Yoshida Shimo-ooji-cho, Sakyo-ku) and the Kujo Stays (8, Higashikujo Nakatonodacho) come recommended.

No journey to Kyoto is complete without stopping off at Nijo Castle. The Konruri-An Machiya Residence Inn and the Fushizome-an Machiya Residence Inn are both within walking distance.

Nearest Airports to Kyoto

The airport probably isn't going to be the most exhilarating part of your getaway, but there's nothing like the excited rush of knowing that your well-deserved trip to Kyoto is a mere plane ride away! Once the wheels hit the tarmac at Itami Airport (ITM), you'll be 25 miles (40 km) from the heart of town.
