As I mentioned then, I stopped by Kyoto real quick before I met up with my friends in Kobe. I absolutely love Kyoto, it is one of my favorite cities to visit! I’ve been there many times, but it always surprises me and amazes me how “old” and “new” are living together in here – Pretty freaking incredible!

There are so many little shrines and temples all the way along the street:
Cool antique clock at Hankyu department store:
A little alley:
When you walk up Shijyo-Dori towards Gion, you’ll see a big river and a bridge. This bridge is called “Shijyo-ohashi”:
Kamogawa River – You can walk along the river from anywhere:
The other side:
Another little temple on the Street:
“Hanami-Koji” – this street is so awesome! (Didn’t have time to walk around there, though)
Love the wall:
