Visit some of Japan’s best temples and shrines, many of which are world heritage listed including Kiyomizu temple, Fushimi Inari shrine, Nijo Castle and much more. The main hall of Kiyomizu is built out on a veranda onto pillars, a structure constructed without nails, looking out over Kyoto city. Founded over 1200 years ago and it is named for a waterfall on the grounds. Take in the beauty of Fushimi Inari shrine its thousands of Torii gates. Fushimi Inari is the most important of several thousands of shrines dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god of rice. Fushimi Inari has a history which is longer than Kyoto becoming the country’s capital in 794AD which lasted for more than 1000 years. Be in awe of Nijo Castle with its nightingale floors. Nijo Castle was built in 1603 as a residence for Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first shogun of the Edo period (1603-1867). His grandson Iemitsu completed the castle’s palace buildings 23 years later and further expanded the castle. For a short period after the Tokugawa Shogunate fell in 1867, Nijo Castle was used as an Imperial Palace before being donated to the city and opened up to the public as a historic site. It is arguably one of the best surviving examples of castle palace architecture of Japan’s feudal era and designated a world heritage site in 1994.
