Japan Diary: Kyoto - Day 1/3

This was my second time to Japan but my first time travelling overseas with my friends! It was great to visit such a beautiful country all over again. I'll be blogging Kyoto in 3 parts as we did so much over 3 days. This is the first day in Kyoto:

We arrived in Tokyo around 6pm and it was already dark and raining. We were starving and decided to head to CoCo Curry House and also bought some heat packs on the way home because it was freezing. The next morning we headed to Kyoto!

This was our view from our apartment on the top floor in Kyoto!

We wondered around the small streets around our airbnb and headed towards the train station to go to Togetsukyo Bridge.

Making our way to the bamboo groves:

I have always wondered what would happen if you dropped something along the train tracks and how you would be able to retrieve it again. Luckily for me that afternoon, I was able to witness somebody who had actually dropped their phone!!!

On our way to Fushimi Inari - which was one of my favourite places we visited in Japan. We went quite late during the day and when we arrived sunset was already starting. So if you do visit I'd recommend going earlier during the day to complete the 2-3 hour hike up!

I saw these vending machines every where I went in Japan!

Afterwards we headed to Kyoto to go to the Pokemon Centre and to have dinner since we missed out on lunch!

This was one of the best ramen I had in Japan! This was their vegan ramen and the broth was so creamy and made using soy milk! If you're ever in Kyoto then I highly recommend this place, its called Ramen Sen no Kaze. They also do regular ramen if you're feeling a bit more traditional.
