During high tide, the Tori floats in the sea…
During low tide, you can walk on foot to the tori 🙂
teramachi means temple area
but we went there to shop
and while i got a few souvenirs
including a sword-like-umbrella
i got caught up with
the pretty cafes and
second hand books, CDs
that were there for sale
after sunset, the streets lit up
and the temple lanterns
indicated there was indeed
a temple in teramachi street
one of the most popular
zen temples in Japan
golden pavilion they say
and that’s gold up on the roof
but the interesting bit
is how Japanese girls
often wear kimonos
when they visit temples…
Last night I made Maggi for dinner.
I thought I’d cook something interesting
but realised I don’t really know how
to whip up something nice and tasty;
or is it that I really don’t make that effort?
or that I just don’t enjoy cooking?
But when I travel,
I automatically become the foodie
I enjoy all kinds of food.
From the airplane food,
to the take-out-tiffin from
the local family mart
and all that you get in-between.
Kyoto University is an old imperial university;
with much history, nobel laureates, innovation and research
but the thing that stood out for me
was the fact that they have their own beer🍻.
