※ album previews and reviews
※ event reports (comiket, M3, live, etc.)
※ artist spotlights and interviews
※ denpa watchlist renewal
※ a new theme would be nice!

Japan Firsthand: Kyoto (京都) Photojournal


Unfortunately we could not spend a lot of time in Kyoto, besides everything closes so damn early there. The City Of A Thousand Shrines does not disappoint, but make sure you show up early in the morning, not late afternoon. Most of our time was spent at beautiful Fushimi Inari-Taisha as you'll see from the pictures. Make sure you bring a good pair of shoes if you plan on visiting this shrine. Incidentally, late afternoon is a perfect time to visit as the sun sets and blends in with the thousands of torii gates.



Mount Fuji (富士山)

Kyoto Station (京都駅)
Much to its credit, Kyoto is not a very modern city.
Apparently many citizen were against such a futuristic station.
While it is very convenient, it doesn't fit it with the skyline.

This fountain was moving to the sound of classical music.
Very impressive in person, especially due to the lighting and "choreography".
