  • The best way to see Kyoto is to get up at 5.30 in the morning and make your way to any of the city's main attractions.
.
Once there, enjoy the silence and be impressed by the centuries old atmosphere without hordes of tourists getting in your shot!

  • Prayers hang from the rafters at the entrance to Kiyomizu-dera, one of Kyoto's most famous temples.
.
My advice? Visit this place early in the morning around 6 or 7 am, to really appreciate the atmosphere without the daily crowds! .

  • A monk approaches Kyoto's Jishu shrine, early in the morning before the tourist crowds take over the area.

Known as the 'Love Shrine', it is dedicated to several gods connected to relationships and love. In the background you can spot a statue of the main deity, Okuninushi no Mikoto.

  • One of my favourite things about Japan are the many Izakaya found in its cities. These food bars remind me a lot of Spanish cervecerias or Venetian osterie!
.
You just pop in, find a seat, order delicious food and hang like a local!
.
One thing is for sure, I'm spending waaay to much on food here...
