…We arrived in Japan, Osaka on Thursday 20th December. This flight was also extremely pleasant as it was only one hour in length. When we arrived at the airport we took a bus as soon as possible to Kyoto and checked into our hostel. Here we stayed for four days. Kyoto is such a beautiful city. There are many tourist attractions. We were very excited to explore such an interesting place.
We explored the Gion area. Here there were traditional buildings. Some were restaurants, shops and some were still houses. The architecture was beautiful. We really liked the Gion area because this is where traditional Geisha’s roam the alley ways. Another nice area was Pontocho. This area is also known for traditional and pretty restaurants, shops and Geisha’s. This area was really striking because it consisted of narrow lanes that emphasized its traditional pretty character.
