Chizuru and I took a night bus from Tokyo back to Kyoto. I remember it was a conversation on the night bus that made me decide to visit Hiroshima and Tottori on my own. 1,328 more words


Japan: Kyoto - Kinkaku-ji

Kinkakuji Temple, also known as the Golden Temple.
Will definitely go back during the Sakura season to take a photo of the temple in this exact same spot.
