• Nijo Castle: "Nijo Castle" was built in 1603 as a luxurious fortified residence by the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Surrounded by massive walls and a moat, Nijo Castle is famed for its lavish painted screens from the Kano school and the “Nightingale” floor that “chirps” when you walk on it. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site now.
• Golden Pavilion: Golden Pavilion, also known as "Kinkakuji Temple", is perhaps the most well-known temple in Japan. The main pavilion is covered in gold leaf and shimmers in sunlight.
• Kyoto Imperial Palace: Kyoto Imperial Palace, which is also known as "Kyoto Gosho", is surrounded by beautiful entrance gates that are built in the traditional way. Each gate was used for different auspicious occasions and ceremonies. The palace also has perhaps the most beautiful and well-maintained park in the city, which is filled with groves of cherry and plum trees.
