Day 8: Temples
It's famous for a large wooden statue of the "Miroku-Bosatsu" which was designated as the first national treasure in Japan. It's also the oldest temple in Yamashiro, Kyoto. Couldn't take photos inside the hall, but, I loved the place for the gardens. So so so so beautiful. ;_;
I wish I brought my camera. D:
Ninna-ji. The temple boasts a collection of more than 600 treasures, which can be seen at Reiho-kan twice every year, April-May and October-November. (So yeah, I didn't see any, except for the temple's unique low-branched sakura trees called Omuro Cheery T_T) It's also a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site~ (reading from pamphlet ha)
Well, I think the photos aren't quite enough but, yes, it's super beautiful~ T_T
Didn't take as many photos there... was a bit tired and too crowded. And well.. it was under renovation. ~_~
Headed back into the city after a while and went down to Teramachi Street.
Well, Kami-sama decided he didn't love me as much that day. So with every element in the photoshoot possible working against me, model's flight, styling, makeup, hair... oh and the weather, having us nearly freezing to death, there weren't really any photographs. We did have lots of fun being silly though. Just a pity it was one of the photoshoots that I'd really been looking forward to...
Headed back to Tokyo the next day, but before that, Chris and I stopped by an awesome dessert place in Gion.
Day 11-12: Hakone
Well and with that... we'd come to the end of my trip. I... I... wanna go back to Kyoto again~!! ;_;
But umm. I am heading back to Tokyo again end of this month to early May for the X Japan concert... =X
