We visited Japan in April and I am still working through the photos. I’ve had a folder with images to include in the blog for sometime now and in an effort to get these all posted before the end of the year over the next few days there are going to be quite a few lengthy posts with some of the remaining highlights of our trip. Today’s it’s vistas from Kyoto.
On arrival in Kyoto we decided to walk to the Golden Pavillion from the train station and in doing so we ended up discovering a few other shrines along the way. It was still relatively early when the picture below was taken – a lovely morning glow as light burst through the trees.
The Gion area of Kyoto, the famous geika area of Kyoto was beautiful. I could have wandered round these streets for ages – even though it was extremely busy. I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a geika as she swept through the streets at impressive speed.
That’s about it from Kyoto – there are quite a few other posts from this part of our trip here: ‘Blossom in Kyoto‘, ‘Nishiki Food Market’, ‘Cherry Blossom Rain’, ‘Night time walk in Nijo castle’, ‘En route to the bamboo forest’.
