Anyway I wanted to blog about my 3rd day in Kyoto today ^-^ I am really happy that so many of you liked the last one that much :D Thanks so much for the great response! It makes me really happy to see that you like these posts ^-^
So on my 3rd day I went to:
Ninen-zaka + Sanen-zaka
Tetsugaku no michi
Appearently I walked through the whole Higashiyama Area, South and North. So basically you could say the whole right side of Kyoto. Here are two maps from the South and North part of Higashiyama just to show you. It is the area were the most sightseeing spots are on close distance to each other, which makes it quite easy to see a lot in a short time. To see the maps clearly, please click on the pictures.
Well enough rant, here are my pictures :)
In Kyoto you have to be prepared for a lot a lot of stairs to walk and to walk hills up. This was quite hard for me, since I am really not used to it but now I feel fitter :D
Nanen-zaka and Sanen-zaka
These streets were so packed with people that I only took this picture. There were a lot of nice shops, of course lots of souvenir shops, but also lots of traditional shops.
I had the same problem all the time in Kyoto: the huge contrast between buildings and sky. I don't know how to put my camera to get it right, I am not talented with this. I tried my best. Beside this problem I had the problem that day to day my lens got dirtier, now it is that dirty that it is impossible to make nice pictures. I don't know yet if I will upload the pictures from Osaka because of this, sorry but it really is horrible.
Tetsugaku no michi
The day after, sunday, I wanted to go to Arashiyama to see the Monkey Park and the famous Bamboo Grove. But enough for now, I will blog about this next time.
Hope you liked today's entry too :3
