From Kiyomizu-Dera, my long trip came to the last day at Fushimi Inari where I visited for the second time (at first time I came here with snow on the last day of 2010 and didn’t have much time to walk around. I may post some photos with snow in one day.).
Fushimi Inari is the Shinto shrine founded thousand years ago here in Kyoto. The remarkable that you can see here, of course, ‘Torii’. A lot of Torii(s) and also the foxes that believed they are the messengers from God.
Actually, Fushimi Inari is my most favourite place in Kyoto. I really love the magnificence of a bunch of torii (really speechless to explain how I feel every time I see).
This time I could manage to walk around to the top here and back in full cycle. Yeah!
I was back to Tokyo on the late afternoon to prepare myself back to my homeland. Thank you very much for everyone who come to visit my #Japan #bigtrip. I wish I have a chance for next big trip and share the moment for you all again

Today my destination is Kiyomizu-Dera. Normal thing happen in Japan that the sky was so cloudy
I’d started from Gion but Gion in the day time is not that interesting. Good time to take a walk here should be in the evening till late night I think.
Kiyomizu-Dera is one of famous place here as well. View from temple on the hill is magnificent and if you notice, many teenagers come here because the shrine there is related to love :). Also there are 3 lines of water fall where the Japanese believe that they are about smart, love and health.
After Kiyomizu-Dera, I’d got lost on the bus to lake Biwa (hahahaha), the biggest lake in Japan. I only missed half and hour for the twilight time there and could only see some light-up near by the lake.
Happy new year 2013 to all that come to visit my traveling. My #Japan #bigtrip come to the second last day already

Moved to Kyoto by Thunderbird from Osaka in the next day and my first destination was Kinkaku-ji.
Kinkaku-ji, the golden pavilion, is absolutely the most famous place in Kyoto. End of 2010, I used to be here and that time it was raining
Now in 2012, luck was with my side. I could see the blue sky with the golden pavilion Kinkaku-ji reflected on the pond
After took my time walking and relax here, I went back to Kyoto station and prepared for the next day.
Next of my #Japan #bigtrip is still here. Thank you very much to accompany on my blog

Just out from Hiroshima by the next day of Miyajima and arrived Osaka in early afternoon.
Absolutely, people who come to Osaka should visit Osaka castle
The whole afternoon I only visit the Osaka castle and have a relax seat in the garden near by. That’s why I name this topic as ‘a rest’
In the evening, before the next move, Dotonbori was the place to have a great meal. Crab sushi that’s what I meant
Follow my #Japan #bigtrip to the next place here soon

Next target that’s quite near from Hiroshima city and Miyajima is one of the 3 best sight seeing view in Japan.
At the entrance, a lot of dears will come to attack you for food and I think people might spoil them already because I can see they eat everything – -’
Red Torii stand on the sea. Normally in the day time that is high tide, the tourists ride a boat if they want to see it in near field but when the low tide, we can walk to the Torii itself.
Miyajima also has other interesting places which are 5 stories pagoda or Mt.Misen behind this island that you can see very nice view there.
Unlucky again, the sky was close when I hiked to the top of Mt.Misen. Anyway the weather was very nice and anytime you reach the top of mountain, your feeling will be very good
Going down from Mt.Misen in the evening, it was the low tide and Miyajima will show the nice view again at the Torii. Take time till the dark sky comes, it was the time to go back, take a rest and to be ready for next day trip
Keep going for my next #Japan #bigtrip here…
