A Travellerspoint blog

Kyoto is hot hot hot

sunny 26 °C
View small jaunt on scurried's travel map.

The humidity hits us at the beautiful city, where old meets new near the fast flowing Kamo River. Kyoto is laid out on a grid system so easy to navigate, however we still couldn’t find the rendezvous point to meet Nick and Mikki, residents and wonderful guides to all the city has to offer. It has been so much fun travelling around with friends who can explain and answer all our questions about Japanese culture and traditions.

The temples just out of town are amazing, set in beautiful gardens.

We also sampled tradition tea making near Kyoto’s antique shops, squid balls in the market and a selection of tasty Japanese sweets.

Mikki told us that the beautiful kimono girls liked me asking for their photo, and we also spotted an elusive Maiko (an apprentice geisha).

The blog on Tokyo is still to come...
