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!

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


  1. Ooh great one, I've never thought about visiting Japan but after seeing these photo's I'm definitely considering it! It looks beautiful! :)

  2. oh my gosh!!! Kyoto looks like heaven. I've never been to Japan but it's definitely on my list.. sooooo pretty!

  3. I love those trees with the red leaves. Great pictures. I like sushi too, get it for take out every once in a while. Never 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.

  5. You and that sushi. ;) I'd love to visit Japan! I could totally go around with no shoes on and no one would look at me funny.

  6. I've never been but would love to.

    Nice to meet you, and I hope you're enjoying the Challenge!
