japan, tokyo

Tokyo & Kyoto. Such beautiful cities. Our six-day trip was quick but it gave us time to appreciate the attention to detail from the flower pots streaming down alley-ways to the exquisite Kanji lettering. In Tokyo, our stops included the Senso-ji Temple, Meji-jingu Shrine, and the Imperial East Gardens. We walked through the busiest intersection in the world, Shibuya Crossing, and the largest fish market in the world, Tsukiji Fish Market. Amazing ramen in Tokyo Station, and, who would have thought, a lot of delicious snacks at convenience stores like 7-11.

Our second stop in Japan was Kyoto, via the high-speed bullet train called the Shinkansen. We saw the Kiyomuzudera Temple, Tofukuji Temple, Fushimi-Inari Shrine, and sampled sashimi tuna, spiced squid on a stick at the Nishiki Market. We also made friends with the monkeys of Arashiyama and stayed at a traditional ryokan onsen, with natural hot spring baths before our journey ended.
