Day in Kyoto

We woke up and had a late breakfast at 9:30 AM at the hotel.

In the lounge, Katya had a coffee and I had a powdered-tea cappuccino, whatever it may be.

We rent bicycles and rode them to Tenryuji Temple.
Ryoanji Temple

The garden was very beautiful, but the leaves were being fallen.

Then we moved to Jojakkoji Temple.  The garden is less sophisticated that the one in Ryoanji, but you can enjoy a pleasant walk on the hill.

After the walk, we had a late lunch at “Peeping Tom“.

Katya was a little tired.  We went back to the hotel at 3 PM.

    Green (or should that be golden) with envy. Enjoy your golden leaves adventure… although I’m not 100% sure about the “powdered-tea Cappucino”. Those three words are generally not put in the same sentence, let alone to describe the one product.

    The best season might have been a week earlier. But the combination of nature and architecture still is superb in Kyoto.
    “Powered-tea” should have read “Powdered-tea”. “Powdered-tea Cappuccino” tasted like Cappuccino simply mixed with tea powders. It seemed to be a joke to me.

    Hehehe…. i guess there’s always lots of things out there looking for a market (you never know powdered-tea cappucino might be the next big thing… but I kinda doubt it).

    It might be easier to time holidays to coincide with autumn colours, but it’s still hard to get that “perfect” season right. Still, looking at Katya’s photo’s, it looks like there was a lot of beautiful scenery.

    Many people visit Kyoto, and they would venture a drink once like me. This could be their business model :) .

    I agree with you that Katya is a photographer. She dedicates herself.

    We have already reserved a room in another hotel next November, two weeks earlier than this year. This would not be the best season, either, but we could enjoy earlier autumn.
