      ... The gates are donated by businesses or organizations wishing for a good fortune. They are all arranged along the pathway, allowing tourist to walk through their orange glory. I met two Japanese ladies traveling from Tokyo, Ayuko and Tamiko, that helped me understand the gates. The lettering on the front says something along the lines of `donate generously` and the back has all of the names of the people. They also showed me the differences in the gates: the rare stone gates date back ...

      After the immense overload of Tokyo, Kyoto as the next stop made perfect sense. A chance to calm down the senses and explore the historical side of Japan.

The combination of a modern city and a city that is steeped in history works well here. Nijo castle, gardens and the Golden ...

      I checked out of the ryokan this morning and headed on to my second "uniquely Japanese" accommodation experience: the capsule hotel. I just dumped my bags and went straight out, but the place looks awesome. Headed off for breakfast and found a nice cafe serving tea and toast. Had toast with bacon on top. Dropped a piece of bacon and managed to burn my chin. Not entirely sure how, but I think I deserve a Darwin Award for managing ...
