Kyoto in pictures 1

Shrines shrines shrines and more shrines.

Kyoto is the old capital of Japan. It is your standard japanese city filled with 7-elevens, karaoke, ramen joints and a complicated transport system. What makes it stand out is that it has more shrines, castles, temples and pagodas than you can shake a stick at. I went with marc. We stayed there 3 nights. We explored, ate a lot of different and delicious stuff, found a few tucked away interesting bars, managed to chats with some very friendly locals and did a lot of sightseeing. Here are some pictures:

Tofukuji temple:

Fushimi-inari taisha shrine:
consisting of thousands of orange gates- we climbed a mountain walking through all of them.
We stopped for lunch at this beautiful traditional restaurant overlooking the forest:

At kiyomizu-dera temple:
