We wanted to see as many UNESCO world heritage sites as we could. I had already booked a tour the following day for a bus tour that went to both Kyoto and Nara, but we realized that we’d only see a few things. We were staying at the Hyatt Regency Osaka which was a great base for us. The bus tour promised a visit to Kinkaku-ji temple in Kyoto and Todaiji temple in Nara.
