Took a train from Osaka and then a bus from Kyoto Station. Its kinda interesting what the mind remembers. In this case, I vividly recall falling asleep on the bus and woke up to find the bus fare I was holding in my hands missing.
Lesson learnt, always keep your bus fare in your pockets.
Anyway, we were at Kyoto in the day to check out Kinkaku-ji and only arrived at Gion in the evening when the sky was already dark.
A peek into the streets of Gion. We strolled down very briefly and found it to be filled with rather high end restaurants.
A few thousand origami paper cranes containing the wishes and blessings of those who left it there.
Thinking back, our trip to Japan was really too short and we only managed to spend a couple of hours in Kyoto itself excluding the traveling time from Osaka.
We’ll be back Japan! XOXO.
Procrastination is a scary thing. I had 24 hours to complete my post for today. Now I have about 3.5 hours. I had been scrolling through my photos trying to find something to write about today but nothing seems to be what I’m looking for.
So for the sake of sticking to my 30 days challenge, writing even when I’ve no inspiration (well practice makes perfect), here goes, snapshots of Japan. Photos I had previously edited using some random app on my iPhone to be uploaded to Facebook. Hahahaha.
Braving the cold with our luggage in tow to check out the Marble beach. I wonder what purpose do those cement structures serve.
Pretty manhole cover at Osaka. The manholes in each city has a different representation.
Kinkakuji, The Golden Pavilion at Kyoto where we could see snow falling from the sky but disappearing once it touches the ground.
Took a ride on Santa Maria cause LF thought it looked like the ship from One Piece. Hurhur.
Kobe Tower at, well, Kobe.
The famous deers at Nara. Looking at this photo actually sparked off an idea for a post which I shall leave for tomorrow.
So when I finally start blogging about Japan, these will be the places that I’ll be covering. Hahahaha.
Concluding my half hearted post for day 3. Over and out.
