... running away. Well done, you've outwitted a dear. Anyway the main attraction here is the Big Buddha, an unsurprisingly enormous statue of Buddha housed in an even bigger temple complex.
This is my final stop for Japan as I jet off to Colombia tomorrow, and I arrive the day before the World Cup. Happy days. However while it has been a tad exhausting to see as much as I can, it is with a bit of emotion that I'll depart this beautiful part of the ...

I'm pretty sure photos won't do this place justice; it was pretty neat. I'm also happy there was a breeze, because i could ...

Cool and classy Kyoto

... temples. Kyoto is the setting for Memoirs of a Geisha, and the city still retains some of its traditional streets and teahouses. We treated ourself here to a kaiseki, which is a classic Japanese meal made up of lots of small courses. We did it hipster style though, at a trendy little place where you sit up at the counter and watch the footballer-quoiffed chefs work. It was properly delicious and by now we were really falling for Japanese ...
