Hi I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries!
I’m a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter of English for 9 years.
For the people who are interested in and planning trip to Japan ,
I show you hidden local information which you have never seen and heard of through books and ordinary site!
You will find unexpected fun through my articles!
We went on a 1 day bullet train tour to Kyoto from Tokyo.
We took the first Shinkansen in the morning at Tokyo station to Kyoto.
We took this photo to commemorate the trip.
Fushimi Inari Shrine
The first destination in Kyoto is Fushimi Inari Shrine.
The shrine was founded in 711, and is the main shrine of the 32,000 Inari shrines throughout the country.
The shrine is famous for its countless beautiful red torii gates.
It is said that there are about 10,000 torii gates in the entire Fushimi Inari Shrine.
Togetsu Bridge over the Katsura River is the symbol of Arashiyama.
The contrast between the river and the mountains is beautiful, and the flow of the river is refreshing.
Arashiyama Monkey Park
There is a small shrine across the Togetsu Bridge, which is the entrance to the monkey park.
The entrance fee is 600 yen and 300 yen for children.
After entering the entrance, 20 minute walk along a mountain path leads to the Monkey Park.
There are 30-40 Japanese monkeys roaming around freely, paying no attention to humans.
You can buy food for 100 yen to feed the monkeys.
Kimono rental and hair and makeup
Next, it is time to put on a kimono and have their hair made up.
It is fun to choose a kimono of your choice and a matching obi( sash).
All three of them are dressed up and ready to go.
This is a lovely shrine that appears in the 12th century Tale of Genji.
There was a diving grass ring to ward off evil spirits.
Bamboo Grove Path
We can get to the bamboo grove with a short walk from Nomiya Shrine.
It is a very surrealistic atmosphere as you enter the tall bamboo grove.
Kimonos are a good match.
Next, we went to Tenryuji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
There were many hydrangeas in bloom.
I took pictures mainly of women with flowers!
The Japanese garden is also very beautiful with a pond in the center.
Next, we took a break at a Japanese-style cafe.
Espresso was available,it’s perfect for Italian visitors.
Arashiyama Kimono Forest
At Arashiyama Station of Arashiyama Electric Railway, there are many objects with kimono patterns called “Kimono Forest.
It is very fun to see the various patterns.
We are going back to Tokyo from Kyoto by Shinkansen.
Thank you for your hard work.
I hope they enjoyed the Japanese atmosphere in Kyoto!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
