Enjoyed playing with these cuties today! Also got a few snuggles in with some corgis which made me miss my little fatass. Just happy spend the day with new friends learning more about the world. . #ohtheplaces #kyoto #japan #deerwhisperer #cutie #snacktime #traveler #happyplace #maketheworldsmaller
The gate of Chion-in, a buddhist temple in Kyoto and is the largest wooden gate in Japan. It was so peaceful to have the place mostly to ourselves. Such a wonderful change from the city. Happy the dreary morning didn't damper the day. . . #ohtheplaces #kyoto #japan #travelholic #travelmore #japanesearchitecture #arch #woodarchitecture #beautifulplaces #temple #traveltheworld #calm #serenity #discover
Had one of the most amazing meals ever at this izakaya we stumbled into in the Gion district 😛 Still drooling over it. Even convinced the totally hip owner to take a pic with us. Thanks for a wonderful experience and delicious food! 😍 . #ohtheplaces #kyoto #Japan #delicious #oishi #droolworthy #yum #happyandfull #foodporn #gion #travelblogger #travelling #eat #arigato
Biking around the city was great! Enjoying the cherry blossom trees at the Imperial Palace of Kyoto 🌸 #ohtheplaces #kyoto #japan #travel #weee #bikelife #windinmyhair #cherryblossom #spring #beauty #traveler #bloom #urbanexplorer #seetheworld #discover #travelling #fun #exploretheworld
Oh yeah, we broke out the selfie stick today! Cheesing it up all over the Sensō-ji Temple. Completed in 645 to honor Kannon, the goddess of mercy, it is Tokyo's oldest temple. This was by far the most magnificent temple I've seen. Hopefully this will bring me a little mercy for the rest of my trip!
Stumbled upon the Reiyukai Shakaden Temple, which promotes world peace, near Roppongi. This has to be one of my favorite temples so far. Its austere presence within the quaint, bustling atmosphere of Tokyo was mesmerising. "Only by changing each person human beings can change the world." - the Reiyukal
Maserati in front of the Ferrari store.
Golden Gai fun. Narrow alleyways and even tinier bars. A crazy last night with friends.
I'm nerding out over the buildings here. The architecture here is fasinating! Wonderfully detailed and efficient. Can't get enough of this city! Happy to have friends to explore it with! I couldn't be luckier 😊
Hedgehog Cafe in Tokyo! I've never seen one before but these little weirdos are pretty cute. I felt a little cliche but it was an interesting break for the day. Still think I'm a dog person 😜
Shibuya Crossing. Enjoying checking out off some touristy things today. Falling in love with Tokyo! Such a wonderfully clean and orderly city. Apparently about a million people more through this cross each day.
Bullet trains, subways and mountains. Been moving around quite a bit but finally settled in my hostel in Hakuba. Gonna shred for a few days before back to the craziness of Tokyo. I had been so worried about traveling alone before I left. Now I can't imagine why I was so nervous. The people have been welcoming and accomodating. I couldnt have asked for more. Made friends everywhere I've been from the plane to the slopes. Japan has been far easier to navigate than I expected and it has exceed expectations and I'm only two days in! Cheers to making the world smaller one trip at a time 😉
Mahalo Hawaii. Cheers to the wealth of new experiences and possible travel buddies. I'll be back.
