Day 20-22: Kyoto

... and the food was served on a hot plate incorporated in the table. The following morning we went to Sanjusangendo Temple, founded in the twelfth century, which contains 1,001 hand carved statues of Kannon, the goddess of mercy. All bar one are exactly the same size (6 feet tall). In the centre sits a large wooden statue of the 1000-armed Senju Kannon (11 feet tall), an amazing sight, but unfortunately ...

Kyoto - The Enchanting Old City

... felt that long. Maybe because we were distracted with so many beautiful sceneries to record in the camera.

Along the way, we past by a traditional green tea ice cream shop which my tour guide claimed that it was the best place for green tea ice cream. Unfortunately, the shop wasn't opened yet so I was unable to verify his claim.

As we walk up the hill to go to Kiyomizu temple, we past by rows of shops selling lots and lots of souvenirs. If you are looking ...

We capped off our three week Japan tour with five nights in Kyoto.

The highlight of our stay was definitely our accommodation. We rented a house in a traditional Japanese neighbourhood. Apple House is a two-story townhouse located in the north east of the city (Shugakuin area). It's accessed through a maze of narrow foot pathways; there's no car access.

It rains in Japan

A travel blog entry by choy


Back in Kyoto, we headed to the west side of the city to visit 2 of its most important sites, Kinkaku-ji and Nijo-jo. It started raining already when we got off the train and it just kept picking up as we went along. Stepping inside the Kinkaku-ji area, we almost immediately stood in front of its headline attraction, the Golden Pavilion. A pavilion in the middle of lake completely covered with gold leaf. An impressive sight for sure in its simple opulence.
