Travel Blogs from Kyoto

One gate after another

A travel blog entry by jochembakker


Day 2 in Kyoto, and I am planning to go to a place I had been wanting to see as soon as I decided to go to Japan: the Torii gates at Himeji shrine.

I think the drinks are free refills and you get a choice of self-serve teas ...

This is a top pick!

... caught in the traffic jam on the high seas, we actually got a better view of the whole event. I would love to have met the dude who, probably sitting under an apple tree one day, had the epiphany to tie a rope leash snugly around the neck of a cormorant so they couldn't swallow any big fish, stick a basket filled with burning wood out in front of the boat to attract the fish, throw the cormorants in the water to do what cormorants do- dive for fish, reel ...
