Fall Leaves, Kyoto, Japan

This a photo from my trip to Japan back in 2009. Japan was such an amazing place to travel to. It saddens me when I watch coverage of everything going on over there. My thoughts and well wishes are with those in Japan in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami.

[28/365] Autumn Leaves, Kyoto, Japan

Autumn in Japan is amazing! I’ve never seen leaves so red! Anyway, that’s all from me tonight. Good night, friends!

[18/365] Rainy Day, Kyoto, Japan

It’s pouring rain in LA! Well, not so much right now, but earlier it was and there are supposed to be a couple storms this week. Supposed to be the most rain in LA in a few years?!? We’ll see if that’s true. This picture isn’t from LA obviously – its from Kyoto, Japan, just […]

Day 6: Kyoto, Japan

On day 6, we explored Kyoto since we had been staying there but mostly taking day trips to other cities. It was a bit harder to get around Kyoto, just because most of their local trains are not JR(Japan Railways) and we had a Japan Railway Pass that allowed for unlimited usage on all JR […]

Lantern by Night, Kyoto, Japan

Took this photo as we were heading back to our hostel from the Kyoto train station.

Day 3: Tokyo, Japan to Kyoto, Japan via the Shinkansen

The itinerary for today included the bullet train ride to Kyoto, southwest of Tokyo. Since we weren’t able to get the earliest train ride out to Kyoto, we ended up heading to the Tokyo Tower. On the way there, we came across the Zojo-Ji Shrine, where we found rows and rows of these small concrete […]
