The golden temple in Kyoto
I have to admit I thought Kyoto would be a little less exciting than Tokyo… I was wrooooong! In this city one can explore plenty of historical, cultural and world heritage sites like gardens, forests, temples, lakes and shrines.The shopping district is great fun to explore as well. The pictures will tell it all… I just looooove Kyoto!!!
We were quite optimistic the first day trying to do sightseeing while bicycling – in 37 degrees farenheit! That did not work too well. We had to give in after hours of sweating and overheated heads and bodies. The next days we tried the JR, metro and bus instead and we managed to get around to see many beautiful places all happy and relaxed.
