Snapshot Japan: Enchanting Kyoto

Kyoto, Japan’s old capital, is a Unesco World Heritage city. All the guidebooks and travelers recommend stopping by the city when they’re in Japan.

Just three hours out of Tokyo via shinkansen (bullet train), the major sites can be seen in a day, but if you want to see more and spend more time in each, it’s best that you stay for a night or two.

If you love taking pictures, Kyoto will not disappoint. The temples, shrines and palaces are well preserved and a marvel to explore.

      All set na sana kami tapos nakita namin yung map. Biglang nawalan ng energy hahahaha! Buti nalang we decided to at least make it to the next stop, because we saw our first cherry tree in bloom!
