S15S Kyoto ~Temples and shopping~

Saturday 15 September 07

I woke up late but thats ok, no harm done. We headed out at 8am. First we went to Nijo Castle. It was alright. The outside wasn't all that, but the inside was impressive! There was hundreds of tourists there though >_< It was the first time I heard the noise of a nighting gale floor. It's like music, or little crickets or something. It's not really a wood sound. Anyway, Nijo Castle was like an art gallery! With shiny gold painted wall paintings in every room. Just like in the art books I studied at uni. Now I got to see them in real life =p We weren't allowed to take photos, but I can look them up on the net.

Then we went to the Golden Pavilion 'Rokunoji Temple'. It was cool to see, but a bit overdone in my eyes. Finally we went to 'Ryoanji Temple'. It was kind of boring. There was a rock garden, but it was tiny. Plus there was moss, which looked pretty. But if u think about it,,,, its moss XD It was a very hot day today, but we got through it.

At 1pm or so, we all went our own way on 'free time'. The boys and I went searching for food. We ended up having pizza in a restoraunt. It was great! Then we looked at Kyoto Tower mall. It's quite small. But 'The Cube' was a good mall. Later we found others too. By the end of today, I bought stacks of pretty-boy magazines! Like *Potato * Wink Up *Cinema (it had Matsuda Shota in it). *Mens Egg *Neo Genesis (awesome jrock mag). They costed a lot! But its ok. We have only one more day to do souvenir shopping.

At 7.30pm, we all went to dinner ar an awesome restoraunt that reminded me of an underworld hangout XD The food was nice I bet, but I only had an ice cream. We just chilled there, it was fun. Peter san kept trying to photo the waitresses hahah! Afterwards we explored Kyoto station. You can climb to great heights there. But at 10pm we got kicked out coz it 'closed'. The boys and I sat around there till 11 anyway.
