We are heading to Japan to visit relatives in Tokyo and are taking a side trip to Kyoto with 8 year old twins. My boys are fairly patient but as I recall, there are just A LOT of temples so I figure one per morning is about it. We are there 3 days (maybe too long?) in April during the busy cherry blossom season. Any ideas for things to do in the afternoon with kids? Luckily we rented a house so we have a little yard where they can play.
We are interested in Arashiyama but worry the hike may be too much for my 83 year old MIL! Is it a tough hike up the mountain?? Or am I reading the guide book wrong. Thanks
