kyoto top sights

Jump to last reply

I will be in Kyoto with my husband for three days in late november.

What are the most important and impressive temples and other sights to see there ?(there are so many, I dont know how to choose)
I was considering both a walking tour (perhaps one of Chris Rowthorn's)

Chris offers the following walking tours:
-Nanzen-ji Temple to Yoshida-jinja Shrine
-Tofuku-ji Temple to Fushimi-Inari Taisha Shrine
-Classic Southern Higashiyama
-Arashiyama
- a two hour evening tour of gion

These are all 4 hour walking tours except Gion I just dont know what to choose. I plan to take a driving tour of some other sights(suggestions welcome) on another day.

any recommendations from the above or other recommendations of what to focus on while we are there?
