Woke up at 4AM. OLD MAN! Luckily breakfast started at 6am so I was first in best dressed!
Our first stop today was Kiyomizu Temple.
The Sakura are starting to open!
Good luck charms. I always buy a few of these to hand out to friends!
Mum getting her Zen on.
Our guide Sayuri!
We then walked on to the Gion area in search for Geishas!
And then we spotted some, hanging with some grandpa’s who looked like they were having a blast.
Then I spotted this crane. And I was mesmerised.
It’s trained! The shop owner came out at some point and fed it in the river next to the shop! So rad!
I’m honestly blown away at how different Osaka and Kyoto are from Tokyo. Can’t wait to come back and spend quality tie in these areas without a tour.
Boomers on Tour!
Sunset in Kyoto. So good it stopped raining today!
Then we checked into a new hotel, much more grand than the last. Of-course I get level 8!
We ducked out for dinner and found a dark little lane behind the hotel and chose a restaurant to eat at. Loved the little box ad wooden lock system on their show lockers!
