Solo Backpacking in Japan: Kyoto

Solo Backpacking in Japan

Morning! Time to explore Kyoto. Just bought the 500 bus tour ticket to Kyoto. Unlimited bus ride for one day.

But, Fushimi Inari Shrine first….

I really want to see the thousands of torii. The orangeeyyy thing! So I just followed the tourists (’cause I know there are all going to torii). And when I saw them, I’m like….Just wow!!!

I went back to Kyoto station (the 2nd largest train station in japan with its unique structure). But needed to have some hot chocolate and sweets first.

Ok, time to go to Kinkakuji(Golden Pavillion)

There’s an entrance fee which cost Β₯500 to the golden pavilion. And you will be welcome with this view.

I went back to 9hours hostel.
I ride the bus#4 to Kawaramachi station. But when I got off, the place was quite different. So I asked from the convenience store, on how I can go to Exit #10. And I’m back.

I already checked out so I hauled my luggage, and went to Kyoto station.

I bought my ticket online for the overnight bus going to Tokyo (which is the Willer Bus).
I’m too early for my departure schedule, so I waited for 2 hours.

I already saw the staffs of Willer bus wearing pink jackets. So it’s time to board…departure will be 23:05 going to Tokyo πŸ˜‰

  1. Wow, these photos are amazing. I’ve always wanted to visit Japan, even though I don’t really know a lot about it and I wouldn’t even know where to go. Now I know I definitely need to visit Kyoto because it looks amazing!
