We spent the past four nights in Kyoto. Great city. If you visit Japan, Kyoto must be on the list. It’s the only city sparred from WWII bombing and as such its temples and gardens shine. The main tourist attractions are the temples / shrines. We did our fair share. We checked out a big castle that had hundreds of Buddhist statues — very cool — and lovely park outdoors. We checked out some temples that were surrounded with endless lush forest. Kyoto also has its fair share of high rises and neon lights. Finally, Kyoto has local cuisine that is quite tasty. Here are some pictures!
