2. Take a Rail Tour of Ancient Kyoto

Kyoto is Japan's capital, and it's a city with over 1000 years of history still visible in its streets. This ancient city transforms all of its visitors into sponges, soaking up Japanese culture from the dawn of time. Kyoto has 17 UNESCO world heritage sites within its boundaries. Byōdō‑in Temple, as seen on the back of the Y10 coin, is the star attraction of the Uji suburb. Equally important is Kinkaku-ji's golden pavilion. Indulge in traditional Japanese cuisine, take a rail tour, or enjoy spotting some of the world-famous geisha. In short, Kyoto is ripe for the picking.
