I live about 2 hours by slow public train in the other direction from Kyoto. Are you taking about just a night, or a day and a night? Most of Kyoto’s sights are best taken in by day, so I would only recommend it if you were going to spend at least one day. I would recommend Nijo-Jo (Nijo castle, but not in the traditional sense of a castle. From the 1600s I think), Mitaki-dera (a gorgeous shrine. Be prepared for crowds, especially if you are going in Autumn or Spring), Fushimi inari-taisha (has a huge walk with red tori gates – seen in memoirs of a geisha), and the bamboo grotto.

Everyone else says to see the golden pavilion – I haven’t got there yet!

Enjoy Japan 🙂

@nushka:  i usually just find little restaurants. Kyoto has a lot. (or I stop in Osaka, but that’s not so useful!)

Do it.  Kyoto is awesome.  I hope it snows on you, because that makes the temples even more beautiful.
