Yasaka Shrine (八坂神社) and Gion (祇園) at Kyoto, Japan


It's the first of the 2 days that we spend in Kyoto.  We came to Yasaka Shrine!  Really pretty bright orange shrines everywhere.


At the entrance, we saw vendors selling crab sticks.  I usually hate the taste of artificial crab sticks.  I don't know what came over me, but I got one and regretted it immediately.  It's just regular crab sticks, but this one is huge and was on a stick.  That's all I can see about it.  If you don't like the artificial crab taste, then don't get it.



There were lots of students everywhere.  Praying for good grades?









I don't believe in praying and stuff.  So, I never went to any of the shines to pray or rang their bell.  I only prayed and rang the bell at this one.  Shrine for beauty! HAHAHA.






I kept walking and walking and I already don't know where I was.  Lucky for me, I saw the last bit of cherry blossoms,













From Yasaka Shrine, we walked to Kiyomizudera (清水寺), but by the time we got there, Kiyomizudera was already closed for the day.  I think they close at 5pm if I remember correctly.


Then we walk around Gion.  My back and feet were aching from all the walk.  I just wanted to leave.  So we had a quick walk around and headed back to Osaka.



There were lots of girls in kimonos.  Is that what you call it? I didn't try on one that day as I got there pretty late already.



I was walking around areas of point M, N, O in the map.
