4 Days in Kyoto

Jump to last reply

My "3 Days in Tokyo" thread yielded great advice and now I am looking for help with Kyoto. Given that we will set aside a full day for a trip to Nara, how would we best organize the other 3 days? Below are sights that might interest us but we really don't want to spend all of our time visiting temples. It would help to prioritize and leave enough time for shopping. Please suggest itineraries, with timing.

Ginkakuji Temple and "Path of Philosophy"
Gion District for shopping
Kyoto Handicraft Center
Kiyomizu-Dera (temple)
Sansjusangen-Do (temple)
Daigo-Ji (temple)
Fushimi-Inari Taisha (temple)
Niju-Jo (Castle)
Ryoanji Temple
Kinkakuji (temple)
Adashino Nembutsyji (temple)
Koinzan Sai Hoji (temple)
Enryaku-Ji (temple)
Imperial Gardens

We will be staying at the Hyatt Regency, by the way...
