Remembering Kyoto

It was hot, really hot and humid. July in Kyoto probably wasn’t the best choice, but we made it work.

The Philosophers Path to the Ginkaku-ji pavilion was quiet, rainy but so lovely. It was a hot day, but the rain helped cool us off a bit.

The temple and gardens were stunningly beautiful, and since the weather was lousy, the place was pretty much empty.

Later that day we visited the Kinkakuji temple, the Golden Temple. The weather had cleared, so it was quite crowded with tourists from all over the world. Walking into the temple grounds felt a little bit like entering a Disney theme park due to the many shops, cafes and other offerings. The temple itself, once we arrived was amazing.

We visited other places in Japan, so watch for more posts.

Wishing you happy and adventurous travels,

Tricia
