About Japan

In Tokyo, visit Meiji Shrine, built in the 1920s to enshrine the emperor, and Asakusa Kannon Temple, Tokyo’s oldest temple completed in 645 AD. In Kyoto, visit the Temple of the Gold Pavilion, a Buddhist temple covered in gold leaf constructed in the 14th century; the Fushimi Inari Shrine, famous for its thousands of brightly colored shrine gates; Kiyomizu Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site founded in 778 AD with amazing views over Kyoto; and Nijo Castle, the official residence of Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu.
