Kyoto 京都市

Our next stop after Fukuoka will the Kyoto (京都市). Easily one of the most popular spots in 日本 and with good reason…. Last time I went to Kyoto I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to visit it again on my upcoming trip!!

Kiyomizu-dera (清水寺)


Maiko (Apprentice Geisha) in Kyoto

Kyoto has some many things to do and see and is well known for its temples and shrines..
Here are a few temples/shrines that are a must see when visiting Kyoto (京都市) :

Kinkaku-ji (金閣寺)


Fushimi Inari-taisha (伏見稲荷大社)

Gion is a must for all visitors to Kyoto as it represents Old Japan…

If you’re looking for a good location to stay within Kyoto, I believe Gion is the place to stay.. On my last trip i found myself walking about 15-20 mins into the Gion area… this time I have booked a hostel under 5 mins away from Gion…
Here is a link to the Hostel on TripAdvisor:
Kyoto is also known to be a well known spot for Geishas and Maikos (Aprentice Geishas).. which alot of people find unique and interesting including my self  😛
Geisha in Higashiyama..
The above is where I will be starting my sightseeing within Kyoto… there is so much more to do so if you know of any good places please do drop us a line below >.<
