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

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 :D

7 October 2012

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 :D

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 :D

Last move in Tohoku area for my big trip before moving south.

Hiraizumi is a bit far from Sendai where is located in Iwate. 15 minute bicycle ride from Hiraizumi station, the beautiful world heritage is waiting.

Because I had to take Shinkansen back to Tokyo in the early evening at Sendai so I have only a little time to take photos before riding back to the station for the train to Sendai.

Only that, I still perceived Hiraizumi beauty and sacredness. Natural and what human built are really matched :)

Keep going with me to my next move on my #Japan #bigtrip :D

28 September 2012

The second day of my long trip moved from Sendai to Yamagata. The destination was Yamadera (Temple on the mountain).

Actually the name of Yamadera is Risshakuji located on Mt.Hoju-san Risshakuji.

The weather was cloudy and fog that’s quite another kind of beautiful on the mountain.

1,100 steps to the top of Yamadera couldn’t make me tired due to those nice views :)

My #Japan #bigtrip still keep continuing. Hold tight and let’s go with me :D
