We left the hostel at 10:00 am, again, we’re late..
There’s a long line on each Bus Station, we already bought the ¥500 Kyoto City Bus Pass in our Hostel.
Again, better to maximize this one, if you can and if you still have energy 😋. Tip: start your trip early, so you can see more tourist spots, cause traffic becomes worst during peak hours. And go first to temples, some of it closed early. (Go here for Kinkakuji Shrine)
While waiting for Bus 100 (bound to Kiyomizudera temple), the temperature went down. It went to 3 degrees. There’s something circling around us, we thought it’s a dust. And guess what? it’s snow. Yup, it’s snowing!!!😲
It’s really hard to walk in uphill. 😭
And here we are in Kiyomizudera temple 😊
Behind Kiyomizudera’s main hall stands Jishu Shrine, a shrine dedicated to the deity of love and matchmaking. In front of the shrine are two stones, placed 18 meters apart. Successfully finding your way from one to the other with your eyes closed is said to bring luck in finding love. You can also have someone guide you from one stone to the other, but that is interpreted to mean that an intermediary will be needed in your love life as well.
Of course, we didn’t try, ’cause we might hurt ourselves (not to mention, it will be so embarrassing), haha!!
It’s so cold,that we can’t feel our fingers. They are so numb.
So we went to some store, to buy some mochi, with free taste 😛
Then we go to the Sannenzaka and Ninenzaka
After exiting Kiyomizu Temple, a short stroll down the narrow road will lead you to Sannenzaka and Ninenzaka.
We realized that it will be a long walk to Yasaka Shrine, we decided to have some lunch first.
(Go here for Yasaka Shrine and Marayumi Park)
We bumped into Geisha in Gion on our way to Yasaka Shrine. 😊
After Yasaka Shrine…we head to Kyoto station then ride the bus to Ginkakuji, unfortunately when we got there, it was already closed, so we just went to Philosopher’s Path
And because it’s snowing again 😲 we decided to head back to our hostel to rest for a while before going to Tokyo via Willer Bus.
I need some pain reliever or energy drink? I think my legs are already giving up and we’re just on our Second Day 😫
