TripAdvisor Reviews The Screen Kyoto
Travel Blogs from Kyoto
It's a public holiday in Japan. We first went to 伏見稻荷神 ;社 (Fushimi Inari Taisha) in the morning after grabbing a piece of pastry at the metro station. I got a 100-yen coffee at 伏見.

We heard three people speaking Dutch on the other side of the road as we were having our breakfast sitting outside one of the many convenience stores strewn about Japan. We overheard them asking a question I can no longer reproduce to you and I shouted a random response to them in Dutch. They didn’t hear it, so we thought nothing more of it. A little while ...
