Kyoto, All my own!

I went to a one of the ancient city, Kyoto~ ^^!

It was a four-day trip and it had been six years since I went to there last. I saw many temples, shrines, and beautiful streets with old houses or restaurants. They are really wonderful(●^o^●)! I want to show you real them~

Also, food was good. Mmm~, special products in Kyoto are pickled vegitables, powdered green tea, Yatsuhasi(kind of thin rice cake which is made with cinnamon). Especially, the seasoning of meal is meticulous so they were really acrumptions^^!

In addition, I went to another city, Osaka. It aslo characterristic city in Japan. Osaka people are really cheerful, especially women in past middle age are (We call them "Obachan") really funny like comedians^^

Anyway, I could relax by spending time visiting temples and shrines, so I felt that I am Japanese. I want to go there again~

Hello, Ai!
I liked how you updated the pictures by using bubbleshare. ^^ Needless to say, I enjoyed looking at the pictures you took on the trip. You've got Youjiya's oil-blotting paper! That's nice!

Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy the next trip too~!

Hello, granddaughter.

Thank you for the "guided tour" of Kyoto!

Your photos are very beautiful and totally engaging: I couldn't stop looking at them! How wonderful it must have been to be surrounded by such beauty and history! The food also looked really, really good!

Here's something interesting: the daughter of some friends of mine is currently studying Japanese in Japan. She attended a summer program a short time ago (just after she graduated from a university in the U.S.) in Hakkodate and will soon begin a new program during the academic year in Yokohama near the Pacifico Yokohama convention center. My friends' daughter was also recently in Osaka!

Very, very best wishes from Arizona--
