Back to Fushimi Inari!

Posted on 10th, June, 2013

So, my friend is visiting for 3 days. We originally planned to just wander around Kyoto for most of the time but that is seeming to be a little impactical. We went today, though. After almost 4 years I got to go back to Fushimi Inari. I was so excited! Then.. we started to climb :fa21 we kept going up the stairs. They just never ended. The whole trip took us around 2 hours since we did dilly dally quite a bit. We made it to the top!!! :misc7 There were so few people up there.. mostly dead-tired and panting young couples.

After that we decided to head out to the Gion district. There were many Taiwanese and tourists from China =o it was interesting hearing all the different languages.. We walked around a bit and since we were starving we decided to give in and spend some big bucks in one of the restaurants in the area.

Hot sweaty mess but I was happy.
Could eat this every day..

Finally we got back to Kyoto station and walked around. I had NO IDEA how massive Kyoto station is! Holy crap. It’s so fancy. Makes Shin Osaka look like crap.. Heck, it makes Osaka station look like crap… My pictures don’t do it any justice but here’s a random pagoda..?

And to close off.. I wanted to post this picture because it’s hilarious. My other friend here looks like she already drank her whole can of Redbull when she totally didn’t yet.
