KYOTO PREFECTURE

One of the biggest draws in Japan for foreign visitors, Kyoto is simply a delight. The well-beaten path leading to the tourist spots of the temples at Ginkaku, Kinkaku and Kiyomizudera need no introduction, and are simply a must-do for any first-time visitors to the country. The rest of the city has several less-lauded temples that are still spectacular compared to those of other prefectures, making the city well worth an extended stay. Once out of the city proper, there is much to do for those with more time, or those that have already seen the famous sights. The spectacular sandbar of Amanohashidate in Miyazu is a major attraction in the area.
