Kyoto- This is a tourist-friendly place where one finds rich nature, culture and nice people.
Let’s start with Nishi, a young lad whom we met at the Imperial Palace National Garden. My friend Hannah and were planning our next IT when we decided to stop by picnic tables in the garden.
Nishi did not mind sharing the table with us when we asked. Her is not a sad life, I guess, and she wanted some quiet time alone.
The Imperial Palace is a great place to spend your time commuting with nature, maybe reflect about how you’ve been doing in life, love and your family.
Upon arrival at the Kyoto Station, be sure to pass by the Information Centre so you can get a map and get some advise on how to tour the city. We took day pass for the Roku passenger bus which stops at key tourist spots in Kyoto.
KINKAKUJI CASTLE is also known as The Temple of the Golden Pavillion. Its a Zen-Buddhist temple. According to Wikipedia, the garden complex is an excellent example of Muromachi period garden design. The Muromachi period is considered to be a classical age of Japanese garden design.
For some coins, you can get an instant view of your future in this fortune-telling vendo machine located near the exit. They say if you get a good one, keep the text for souvenir. If not, burn or leave the piece of paper behind. 😉
