The past two Mondays I made my way to Kyoto to see the beautiful fall sights, and visit family!
On the first Monday, I went to meet up with my Aunt and Uncle. They were traveling through Japan to celebrate my Aunt’s 60th birthday, and 35 years of marriage. I hadn’t seen them in such a long time, so it was truly a treat to see them. We of course went to Kiyomizu, Gion and Fushimi Inari. We even got see a small Maiko performance!
On the second Monday, Jeramine, Kohei and I took a quick trip to do even more sightseeing. On this trip we saw Higashi Honganji Temple, Kōdaiji Temple, Heian Shrine and Ryozen Kannon WWII Memorial.
Both trips were such a treat! Not only was it awesome to meet up with my family, but it was also great to spend time with my friends. Also, the colors of Kyoto were absolutely incredible! If you have some time, I highly recommend y’all making it out west to see the Kyoto trees.
See y’all in class!
