A walk on a mountain - big(toe) mistake!

A travel blog entry by andynbaza


Another lovely sunny day. My toe was still a bit sore but approaching normal size again, so the quite extensive walking we did yesterday hadn't seemed to have done any harm.

One of the things from our last trip to Japan we'd decided we'd like to repeat, was the visit to the Fushimi Inari Shrine, the most important of several thousands of shrines dedicated to Inari, the Shinto god
of rice. Foxes are thought to be Inari's messengers, resulting in many ...

Golden Temple

A travel blog entry by maxieduncan


I'd decided to extend my stay in Kyoto three more nights and had to move into a hotel near the central a Kyoto train station. Before that however I put my bag in storage and took the morning to check out the lovely Golden Pavilion Temple. It was a genius idea. A lovely sunny day and the temple was stunning.

Walked about 10kms. Feeling weary so caught the express train home which only made one stop before Shin Osaka and only took 20 minutes.

The fortune paper was wedged into the bend of the cookie instead of in the hollow part of the cookie. They are still sold in some ...

Key-Oh-Toe, Kyoto

A travel blog entry by shenanigans


... man walks past and offers to walk us to the station. He points out some temples along the way and we get to wander through some nice residential areas of Kyoto. Cheers bud! We get more elderly volunteers on our way to Kyoto station. It seems the japanese always want to help even if we dong speak the same language. A train station wouldn't normally be on our to do list while sightseeing but this place is very cool. There's a 4 floor escalator, light show, ...
