Day 3 of Japan! Arashiyama Bamboo Grove & Daigoji Temple | Kyoto

What’s good guys! Day 3 finally done. I’ve been busy with other things, but was slowly finishing this video, little by little, everyday. The adventure for this day was to Kyoto again, but we woke up extra early to shoot at the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove. It’s sort of like a hike with a view point somewhere up top, but we didn’t make it in that far, as we had a schedule to keep during our stay in Japan.

We woke up super early to beat the crowds and so we wouldn’t have people in our shots. If we waited later to go, this spot would’ve been crowded! It was a nice, cool morning that day too which we enjoyed a lot. So peaceful and calm there.

Then we decided to check out Daigoji Temple. I never knew how far this place was from the train station, but we did majority walking and taking trains. We hardly took any taxi’s to save some money. My feet hurt so back from this day from all the walking lol. But Daigoji Temple covers huge ground from the base of a mountain to the top. There’s a museum and other smaller temples at the base, and as you make your way to the top, you’ll hit Bentendo Hall, which is one of the most photographed buildings there. It’s located next to a relaxing pond. Definitely something worth checking out.

To end the day, we just headed back to our hotel in Shinsaibashi and wanted to see what the night life was like in Dotonbori. I didn’t bring my camera for that because I just wanted to relax and enjoy the vacation for once lol.

Day 2 of Japan! Fushimi Inari-taisha & Kinkaku-ji

What’s up guys! I finally got around to finishing day 2 of the stuff we did while in Japan. We went to explore Kyoto for a bit and went to check out Fushimi Inari-taisha and Kinkaku-ji temple. In a nutshell, Fushimi Inari-taisha is where you’ll find the torii, or the bright orange traditional gates all lined up leading up a mountain. Kinkaku-ji is where you’ll find the golden pavilion, one of the famous tourist attractions in Kyoto.

Unfortunately, it was a gloomy and rainy morning which limited me to some of the shooting that I did. I didn’t want my camera and gear to get wet and damaged so I shot whatever I could when I had the chance. Plus if you’re planning to go anywhere that’s a tourist attraction, I’d suggest going early in the morning to avoid all the crowds if you’re looking to take some photos or video because once peak time hits, the crowds will just keep pouring in!

I’m glad we got to learn and physically see some history of Japan tho. It’s definitely some places to check out if you’re visiting Japan for the first time or if you’re looking for places/things to do.

Japan Day 2

sphoto, sphotohi, sphotohawaii, japan, kyoto, fushimi inari, travel, travel photography, canon, canon 80d

We spent a day (ok maybe a hand full of hours) in Kyoto today at Fushi Inari Taisha & Kinkakuji Temple and the rest of our day traveling via trains.  It was a long day that would make your feet hurt (literally) because of all the walking we did but that’s what traveling is all about right?  Exploring and seeing things/places you never see/experienced before and making the best of everything.  It was mainly sight seeing and “touristy” stuff, but it’s our first time here in Japan.  Why wouldn’t we do that?  You have to experience everything at least once while you got the chance to right?
