Little Trip 

Hi everyone, this week we’re headed on a little trip for summer to Kyoto.    I’ll be going for 6 days this time .   I’ve already visited Kyoto city many times    so this time I’ve planned a lot of day trips to more countryside Kyoto.    Starting off with some coffee    a shinkansen ride wouldn’t be complete without getting a ekiben    they also had some summer special ones    so many options     travel start date: Aug 17th 2023    this is a self heating bento box    so nice to have a warm bento on the train    honestly the quality was pretty good too    we had a big typhoon yesterday    so lucky we just missed it    and we’ve just arrived!    my hotel is only 5 mins from the station so I’ll drop off my luggage first    this is where we’ll be staying    will do a tour later! 

First Location

   We have a packed schedule today .   So we’re already off to our first location.    I was looking for spots I haven’t visited before in Kyoto.    And found a interesting temple near Arashiyama .   The temple is about 50 mins from Kyoto station.    The bus to the temple doesn’t come often so I had to take a taxi.    And we’ve arrived    it kind of feels like you’re entering another world .   This temple is not that well known     since it’s hidden deep in the mountains of Arashiyama .   

Nagashi Somen

    there was about another 40 min wait once you get in    the nagashi somen only runs from May to September    so it’s understandable that it get’s so crowded    this is the amazing view with lunch    definitely worth the wait    you’re given just the mentsuyu and some mochi for dessert    and you have to catch your noodles through these bamboo panels    and now we start!    you get one designated panel for yourself to collect the noodles .
