After shooting for nearly 3 weeks straight, I decided I wanted to start my trip off in the most relaxing means possible... so i booked a train ticket down to Kyoto to see some sights, eat some good tofu and relax. Here are a few "touristy" shots of Kyoto. Not that I have seen a lot of Japan, but Kyoto exceeded all expectations and I would highly recommended it! If you know me, then you know I love trains! Kyoto Station.
The highlight of the first day was checking out Fushimi Inari Shrine, which has thousands of red arches on the way to a mountain peak that over looks Kyoto. This is pretty typical, but I had to grab a shot.
Fushimi Inari Shrine #2
One of the many shires on the way up.
A moss covered walk way at the silver temple... lots of tempes in Kyoto.
#1 - There are tons of small alleyways downtown, which are lots of fun to wonder around. Japan reminds me of Europe, just a lot weirder. #2 - Man at dusk.
Alleyway in downtown.
The major highlight of the second day was checking out the Bamboo forest.
which also looked like this.
This was probably about at least 10 inches wide. This spot really reminded me of the Red Woods in CA.
Japan really like putting eggs in / on everything. It supposedly dates back to WWII and if you had eggs, you had money, so its a sign of wealth. But i could be totally wrong.
