My Trip To Kyoto in Photos

KYOTO2

 

During my stay in Osaka, I decided to take a trip to Kyoto,

a city that once served as Japan’s capital and the emperor’s residence. Kyoto is an easy hour train ride from Osaka and has a completely different atmosphere.  What makes Kyoto different from a lot of Japan, is the fact that it was spared during the bombings of WWII because of it’s historical value. While many cities in Japan are historically lacking, Kyoto still has plenty of temples and shrines to see (and not to mention some amazing food).

You can easily spend a whole day or more sightseeing in Kyoto, but since I had a limited amount of time, I spent it seeing the Kiyomizu-dera Temple and it’s surroundings.

Although the temples and the ice cream in Kyoto are both strikingly beautiful, there is one thing that I didn’t like about the city: the crowds. I’m pretty good at avoiding crowds when it comes to pictures, but just for the reality of it, this is real Kyoto:
