A glimpse into Kyoto’s temples and shrines

Kyoto was the original capital of Japan for a thousand years until 1868 and it is justly famous for its thousands of temples, shrines and geishas.

Becki had visited on her previous trip but was keen to explore again so we hit some of the major sights on our two days in the city.

Kinkaku-ji (The Golden Temple):

Arashiyama Bamboo Grove:

Fushimi Inari Shrine:

The Philosopher’s Walk (canal path past temples):

Gion (oldest area of town):

Our cool hostel (Len Kyoto Kawaramachi):

A serene and beautiful end to an incredible fortnight in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Next stop: Hong Kong and meeting up with my Dad
