We were going to go immediately to Kiyomizudera (Kiyomizu= clear water, Dera= Budhist temple), so I had to leave my luggage in to a coin locker at the station and after that we took the buss. It was an amazing tempel indeed. Large mainbuilding, pilars the size of whole trees, stones aranged according to zen teachings, the whole nine yards.
We spent about an hour there and it was amazing, truly amazing. From there we took the bus back towards Kyoto city center and we all went to eat at a ramen restuarant (ramen = Chinese noodle ).
|Me and Miho|
A ryokan is an Japanese style in which means that the rooms are like the ones that japanese people used, and still do, to live in. There is usualy an Futon that you sleep on and the floor is tatami.
I went out for a stroll in the evening to see what the surroundings were like. I live near the station so its allways a big plus.
NB.please forgive me my gramatical mistakes, I'm usualy writing this in a hury and while I'm tired. Plus the keyboard in Japan is a bit different.
