We traveled by bullet train (Shinkansen) to Kyoto (the old capital). A city that is very different from Tokyo. It’s older and vibrant in a different way. If Tokyo is impressive, Kyoto is beautiful.
In the Heian period, this shrine was one of the shrines that carried written messages of important events occurring in Japan, to the gods. That’s why you see a lot of foxes in the shrine as they are regarded as the messengers. X and I also wandered into a cemetery and found a bamboo forrest in the back.
