On some special nights, the Kiyomizu-Dera Temple in Kyoto, Japan will have a light show. It was pretty cool we got to see it because it wasn’t something we planned on. I think it brings an interesting perspective to the temple but mostly it reminds me of a light saber protecting of the city of Kyoto. This means you, Godzilla.
We ended up taking the bullet train down to Kyoto and spending a night there. Thanks so much to everyone who recommend we do that because that little trip made such an impact. I loved Kyoto. What a great little city with so much history.
So in the little time that we spent in Kyoto, we got to visit the Fushimi Inari Shrine. It was so cool to walk through these torii gates. My favorite part was seeing all the light peak through the individual gates. I also loved the engravings. It was like a little surprised when you turned around.
I feel like if my girl friends and I were walking around the city during a blizzard, we’d be doing the same exact thing.
