Day 1

Japan is one of the most beautiful, organized and Traveller friendly country. One should always keep Japan in the travel list. Travel is very convenient and  affordable in Japan. One can take a JR pass which allows you to travel on bullet trains, local trains and buses. Infact one can book a JR pass online before landing in Japan or on the airports or major stations in the country according to the number of days you wish to stay in the country. I took a JR pass for 7days for a trip to Kyoto from Tokyo. It costed me around 33k Yen, which a decent amount if you are traveling through bullet trains.
Kyoto is one of the most beautiful city. It's a  mesmerizing experience. Kyoto, once the capital of Japan, is a city on the island of Honshu. It's famous for its numerous classical Buddhist temples, as well as gardens, imperial palaces, Shinto shrines and traditional wooden houses. It’s also known for formal traditions such as kaiseki dining, consisting of multiple courses of precise dishes, and geisha, female entertainers often found in the Gion district.
Places you should definitely visit in Kyoto.

Arashiyama
This includes the mesmerizing ride of Sagano romantic train, Tenryuji Temple, the bamboo groves and the monkey park. Best done by rental bicycle.

Kiyomizudera (清水寺, literally "Pure Water Temple") is one of the most celebrated temples of Japan. It was founded in 780 on the site of the Otowa Waterfall in the wooded hills east of Kyoto, and derives its name from the fall's pure waters

Fushimi Inari Shrine
Over 10k gates this shrine cannot be missed.
The shrine was founded in 711 making it one of Kyoto's oldest and most historic landmarks. It was founded on Inariyama hill in southwestern Kyoto by the Hata family, moving to its present location in 816.

Kinkakuji Shrine

Temple of the Golden Pavilion” is a must-visit landmark in Kyoto. The Zen Buddhist temple was built in 1397, originally as the retirement villa of the shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu. After his death, the villa was converted to the Zen temple as it is now
