Japan Golden Week - Kyoto 2/2


On our second day in Kyoto, we first went to Kiyomizu-dera temple.  The temple is located on a hill, so the walk is a bit up slope, and along the way there are shops around, selling spring time delicacies like Mochi pastries.

Japan Golden Week - Kyoto 1/2

On our 5th day, we departed Shizuoka at 10pm, and during the 8-9 hours on the road  we slept (or pretended to sleep) throughout the trip, with regular toilet break every 2 hours. I would really commend our organizer Mochan, for a great sacrifice of driving us safely to Kyoto. Traveling to Kyoto from Shizuoka via mini bus has been the toughest road trip throughout our journey. 

Arriving at Kyoto the following morning, at around 7 am we reach Fushimi Inari Shrine.
