While visitors were stampeding toward the more popular shrines and temples, I had these beauties all to myself!
I love spending time in Tokyo, but there are plenty of other sightseeing goodies just a bullet train ride away.
Thousands of torii gates make this Shinto shrine Kyoto’s biggest, and most beautiful, attraction. I enjoyed my second visit even more than the first!
There’s so much to see in Kyoto, and much of it involves a 20-60 minute bus or train ride. Today, I visited the Arishimaya area and the stunning bamboo forest.
If you have time to do just one thing while visiting Kyoto, the Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine is a must, with more than 10,000 blazing red torii gates.
