Kyoto
The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Kiyomizu-dera and Fushimi Inari Taisha. Get some cultural insight at Kyoto International Manga Museum and Kyoto National Museum. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Gion, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and don't miss a visit to Eikando Zenrinji Temple.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Kyoto holiday planner.

Singapore, Singapore to Kyoto is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Singapore to Kyoto due to the time zone difference.

Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Fri): find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan. On your second day here, see the interesting displays at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and then wander the streets of Dotonbori.

To find where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Osaka trip itinerary maker.

Osaka is just a short distance from Kyoto. In February, daily temperatures in Osaka can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 4th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
