Today I went to Kyoto with bullet train, I took bus ride to the station and took a 15 minutes ride from Osaka to Kyoto. The bullet train reached at least 170 Km/hour and is very fast. I could see bus at the highway for a moment and see it’s gone behind. After arrived at the Kyoto station I went to Fushimi inari temple, and I met my friend from university unexpectedly. We both love photography and he bring his nikon D800 while I bring my 5DII. There’s a lot of wall decorated with people name in japanese, they are donators of the temple. You could have your name written there too if you contribute at least $4000.
This is a washing area before you go in the temple.
Someone’s name craved in the wall.
The iconic shots of the temple way in.
Then I went to Kiyomizu temple, this is a larger temple with park around it. To reach the temple I had to hike about 200m to the mountain, along the hiking road there’s a lot of shop selling souvenirs and snacks. I bough a cuttlefish for ¥400 and water for ¥130. You could view the city from this temple and learn Japanese culture, write your wish in a wood.
Do you know that Tokyo is the biggest city in Japan, followed by Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, and Kyoto. In Ai chi province there’s a robot who could make your noodle.
Now I’m taking a 3 hours bus ride to Toyohashi and listening to Kokorono tomo. Inside the bus is quite warm, the lights are turned off so the driver could see better, and lights decorate the highway road. Such a wonderful journey, I always like a long bus ride, it let me reflect my life and how I spent my time.
