Our apartment was in Shinjuku so that’s where we spent most of our time. Which turned out perfect because it was my favorite part of the city. Theres all these great alley ways, stores and restaurant. Every where you turned, there was something new and interesting to see.
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.
Have you ever been to Clarion Alley in the Mission District in San Francisco? Talk about beautiful, inspirational and a place that I want to go back to again and again.
While we were walking through the alley and admiring the pieces, one of the local artists came up to us and started chatting us up about the mural project. Turns out that all the different murals are artists views of political and social issues and no other alley in the Mission district has that kind of distinction. Pretty freakin’ cool if you ask me.
So I guess this is a representation of our current social society.
