👘🌸 Although they are often reserved for formal occasions like weddings in parts of Japan, kimonos are still a relatively common sight in Kyoto city. Like many Japanese traditions kimonos have a close connection to the seasons. Spring is one of Japan's most colourful seasons, and it's reflected in the kimonos worn around Kyoto city. 
Hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to Kyoto during the spring to enjoy the city's famous cherry blossoms. Large numbers of young women can be seen wearing kimonos around the city centre at this time of year.

🎏 In Japanese culture, the koi carp is a highly respected and very symbolic fish that is closely tied to the country's national identity. The koi carp is thought to be a symbol of luck, prosperity, and good fortune within Japan.

⛩️ Ever see photos of red arches in Japan and wonder what they mean? A Torii (which literally translates to “bird abode”) is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine. It symbolically marks the transition from the mundane to sacred.

One might try to paint a picture with water colors on the blue sky, but it is impossible. And it is also impossible to dry up a great river by the heat of a torch made of hay, or to produce a crackling noise by rubbing together two pieces of well-tanned leather. Like these examples, people should train their minds so that they would not be disturbed by whatever kinds of words they might hear. -The Teachings of Buddha| Nanzen-ji #kyoto #kyototouristinfo #kyototourguide #japantrip #japantravel #travel #japan #japanesegarden #discoverkyoto #kyotogardentour #kyototour #discoverjapan #nanzenji  #buddhism #zen #art #culture #garden #landscape #landscaping #airbnb #airbnbexperience #airbnbphoto #日本庭園 #庭 #石 #苔 #南禅寺

【 石塀小路 】
If you're very keen on Kyoto in Japan, you would already know of this traditional path probably, right? 
If you've never been here, you should visit here next time definitely.

It's " 石塀小路(Ishibe-kouji)". Actually it's very very famous and popular among Japanese tourists as well. 
Basically 石塀, this Kanji is read " Ishibei" usually, but many Kyoto people read " Ishibe".
It means stone wall.
And 小路 means a path.

Please take a look at these photos, as you might already know, this place is located close to 清水寺 and 祇園, so those who wear 着物(Kimono) also sometimes stroll here.
Also, the path is narrow, so the sounds of 下駄(geta), which is a kind of traditional Japanese shoes is echoing beautifully like “ karan♩karan♫”. The wonderful atmosphere kindly makes us feel comfortable and notice the long history of here.

As you might know, the essential beauty of Kyoto is not only the beautiful sceneries.
The quietness is also very important factor. 
Thanks to the quietness, we can notice like the sound of Geta, and can end up feeling a beautiful combination between the simple local life and the long history

That’s why, it’s better for us to keep quite otherwise you won’t be able to find some nice sounds in Kyoto.

【 伏見稲荷大社 】
As you might already know, this is a very popular Japanese shrine in Kyoto Japan.

It's Fushimi-inari-taisha.

Fushimi is a name of this place.
Inari is a God. ( It’s originally a god of harvests).
Taisha means shrine.

In particular, this shrine is quite famous and popular among Japanese and international tourists as well, thus it's very crowded in daytime always.
That's why, I'd like to recommend that you visit there in an early morning, like me.
You'll be definitely able to enjoy very impressive sceneries here, and besides, to take some awesome photos here, haha.
If you have time here, it’s better to try going hiking Inari, on the way to the top, you can enjoy a wonderful view of Kyoto.
In my opinion, it’s the best to visit there in winter, because there are a few tourists basically.
If you plan to to go to Kyoto on a vacation in winter, you should add this spot to your list, haha.

【 京都(Kyoto) 】
If you go to Kyoto on a private trip, it might be better to stroll early morning.
You know, Kyoto is always crowded, it’s so difficult to feel the historical atmosphere in a daytime, thus if you would like to enjoy the genuine Kyoto, you should choose early morning time.

Please take a look at this photo.
It’s 【 哲学の道(tetsugaku no mich/philosopher’s path) 】which is well known as one of best tourists-spots here in Kyoto.
Basically there are always many guys here, but it becomes a few guys in early morning.
In particular, it’s so hot and humid in Kyoto as well in summer, that’s why if you strolled in early morning, you would be able to avoid to be soaked with sweat maybe, haha.
