Around the World in 26 Letters--Kyoto

K was one of my blank letters and I didn't now a thing about Kyoto Japan until I searched "places that start with K". The history, the culture, and the food (I LOVE SUSHI) would be worth a visit. Plus, check out how stunning it is!

 
hotels and suites on the Katsura river

Heian Shrine

Kinkakuji--Golden Pavilion Temple

Kiyomizudera Temple

Fishimi Inari--torri gate

Kokedera--moss temple

Ginkakuji--Silver Pavilion

So glad I found a new destination to add to my list! Have you ever been to Japan?

  4. That's a lot of red. Also, I'd love to live in a bamboo forest. It's my second choice after Versailles.

  11. Yes, been to Japan!

    And in my current project, Japan is central to my story. So I had to do some research on Japanese architecture. It's amazing.
