There is lots to see in Kyoto and on this day we will visit three famous sights.  However, if you like, you can use your included Bullet Train pass and visit another city such as Osaka, Hiroshima, etc. on your own. If you stay with the guide we will be visiting Fushimi Inari,  Kiyomizudera (which has a great "over-look" of Kyoto) and Ginkaku-ji (the "Sister" temple to Kinkaku-ji we visited the previous day).
