It's got a load of cultural bollocks to do during the day, shopping and restaurants aplenty and cool nighlife scene that will keep you partying until the early morning. There are literally hundreds of temples in Kyoto so we carefully selected the best of the bunch to ensure we didn't get cultural or financial burnout. The gold and silver temples, known as Kinkaku-ji and Ginkaku-ji respectively, were our ...
