Japan, famous for things such as sushi, Karaoke and Samurai, a visit to this country will reveal how diverse it is. Looking for something a bit out of the ordinary? Why not visit Kyoto and check out these things to see and do:

1) Visit the Kiyomizu Temple - an absolute must see in Kyoto. If you head there on a fine day you get a wonderful view of the city.
