Slurping is encouraged. So it was that my husband, two teenagers and I found ourselves shoeless on straw tatami mats, genuflecting and slurping in Kyoto early this year. Will your kids roll their eyes at having to traipse from museum to cathedral and resist taking in historical facts while finally on a break from the classroom? Or will they be curious and open to exploring a new part of the world with you? Given how my parents had to drag me and my two siblings whining through the site of the Battle of Lexington and Concord when we were young, I now understand why they generally opted for no-brainer beach vacations that did not involve cultural sightseeing.

Can someone suggest something to do either in kyoto or somewhere else accessible through jr pass, for american teenagers who might fatigue out from seeing temple after temple? We will be there for 5 days and am afraid i'll have a rebellion. Kyoto is not a city of temples.
