日本への旅 - 6日目と7 (Trip to Japan - day 6 and 7 )

Usually we had western breakfast at the hotel but for the coffee we always went to Starbucks (at the hotel coffee hard for Italians to have coffee outside Italy) that is at the first floor of the hotel building, in Japan they doesn't have floor 0 (in Italy we have ground floor / piano terra) they start from first floor.
After breakfast we took a little train that runs on trails across homes

and went to Arashiyama to visit Tenryuji temple and the bamboo forest.

They have a good care for the garden and the bamboo forest, there are people removing wild plant and repairing things costantly.

We entered the temple of the clouds dragon (not sure about the name) where pics wasnìt allowed.....but i took a sneaky one (bad girl!)

On the way back we went to the Shogun palace in Kyoto (Nijo castle), inside the palace pic where not allowed, but it was so beautiful!
Like in anime or manga where you see the old time of japan, people walking in this wood corridors, in kimono without shoes, with rooms without wall, just made of big sliding doors (I don't know if is clear what i mean).
We took pics of the huge garden around

On day 7 we went to Inari to the Fushimi-Inari-Taisha Shrine and we walked the Tori path in the wood on the hill.

I will also post a video later.
Thank you for reading!

    1. Those places gave me great emotions, I hope to go back somedays... :)

  2. mamma mia, che meraviglia, le statue poi... sono così "diverse" dalle nostre, anche solo i dettagli... ❤

    1. proprio questa diversità rende il Giappone e i giapponesi estremamente interessanti!
