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.
You've now added Nishiki Market to your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Nijo Castle and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Ginkaku-ji Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center) and Dotonbori (in Osaka). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, take an in-depth tour of Namikawa Yasuyuki Sippo Memorial Museum, steep yourself in history at Heian Shrine, and make a trip to Gion.
