If you could rent a car, I would recommend something like this: Start from Kyoto when you wanna get out, head to Himeji castle and Hirafuku in Hyogo pref. After that go up to Uradome in Tottori pref. And then drive east along the sea line of Tango peninsula and return to Kyoto. You can do this in maybe 3days.
I personally like Kyoto for street photo-shooting because it's touristy so that people don't care about the camera, and you can still get good photos. And Nara is wonderful. You feel somewhat remote, but that's no more than a day. It's a small place. And if you go south, go check out Mt. Koya. That's something.
Anyway, it depends on what you wanna do.

Hey, while you're there, raise some more interest in APUG.
