Japan Day 5 - Kyoto (Kinkakuji Temple and Gion)

Today's area of visit are temples and Gion. The Kinkakuji Temple and Ryoanji Temple are really near to where we are staying.  The day itself was rather gloomy...after these two places, we head back to JR Kyoto station, deposited our bags and ate lunch. Guess what we ate? Korean food! It was because the line was shorter. The other restaurants were practically full.

After that, we made our way to the ever famous Tofuku-ji Temple. We didn't manage to finish the whole course. And risked to check into a very quaint guesthouse, Crossroads. It is located smack in the neighborhood.

After that we went to Gion. We were hoping to catch the walking tour but we were late. Instead we caught the geisha show where they showed their traditional Chado, comedy sketch, puppet show and more.

We ended the night by eating Japanese BBQ.

Let the pictures begin...
