30 November 2013

It’s my forth time in Kyoto since 2010.

Absolutely this period, I visit Kyoto for Autumn color and crowded everywhere here during the weekend.

After arrived Kyoto station by Shinkansen, directly move to Kinkakuji Temple where Golden Pavilion located there and it should be the special day for me because it’s a blue sky day :)

I have plan to visit Kiyomizu-dera during evening time to see the light up so in the afternoon, I still have a few hours. The destination is a strange place for others where is Itsukushima shrine near by Kyoto Imperial Palace. Not crowded here in such a big garden, It’s a nice rest before evening come.

Then I arrive Kiyomizu-dera where is another very crowded place as always.I immerse in temple with Autumn color view here in the whole evening time till the light up come. I can realize that just seeing the photo in internet is totally different than my real experience. Nothing less but you will get more from traveling.

The next day starting from Tenryuji temple in Arashiyama area. Big beautiful area in west of Kyoto always attracts everyone who visit here in every season. This is one of the must place in Japan I can say :)

I have not much time here because I have a big plan in the evening before Shinkansen back to Tokyo as well which is going to the top of Mt.Inari. Then I can just walk passing Tenryuji temple through Bamboo Groves and end there at Togetsukyo Bridge.

After lunch, heading cross from west to east of Kyoto, Tofukuji temple is the destination before last place in Inari. This very large Zen temple is also one of the best place for autumn color. Momiji is everywhere in the temple and the best view is from Tsutenkyo Bridge inside.

Finally time to challenge Fushimi-Inari come. I arrive here around 3PM and start walking to the top of Mt.Inari. Everytime I visit Kyoto, I have to come here in Inari where is my most favorite place in Kyoto. Until now, I still can’t find the answer why I love this place so much. Thousands of torii gates I walk pass just make me fall in love every time.

Almost 5PM I reach to the top, it’s time to go back to Tokyo for the working day coming. And now … I’m waiting for my fifth :D

3 November 2013

Long weekend in Japan then I decided to go Nikko again after 3 years (last year my blog about Nikko got freshly pressed :) ).

Because it’s a long holiday and it seems to be the right time for Japanese people to go on vacation, traffic in Nikko was very high on Sunday and I had to take 4 hours from Tobu-Nikko station to Hotel near by Chuzenji lake :(

On the first day I have only a few hours before sunset to walk around the lake and also to the Kegon waterfall. Autumn colors here are always nice to see. My brain and my mind can be refreshed after long working day by just walking around this place with very beautiful scenery :D

Raining in the morning on the second day, I decide not to go for Akechidaira ropeway and also be afraid of traffic when I move back to the station. So, the world heritage is the target on this day.

Whole day sight seeing the world heritage is such a pretty day. Tosho-gu shrine and Rinno-ji temple are full of tourists as always.

I come back here again and I think it will not be the final round. Nikko is one of the most beautiful place in Japan. Who need to visit Nikko only once? Not me :D

9 October 2012

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! :D

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 :D
