    The problem is that Kyoto’s great stuff isn’t really in the center of Kyoto. I was also left a little underwhelmed by the Gion district. But Kinka ku-ji and Ginka ku-ji are awesome, the Arashiayama Bamboo Forest is nuts, and some of the other far-flung shrines are really cool too

    Seth;
    Any comments about how to get to Hokkaido? What to visit?
    I am trying to do 4-5 days from Tokyo and there are no flights under $600 pp. for Feb or Mar 2016
    UA.com has no mileage awards for that time.
    I know it is “high” season but I really don’t want to do a 10 hour train trip.

    Should I just plan on visiting in the fall instead?
    would it be less expensive?

    thank you
    Rami
