Kyoto, Nara and Osaka, Japan

7.7.14 Suesue

Ok this is going to be a super huge post about my travel in Japan. For anyone who is considering to go to Japan for vacation: GO and visit Kyoto, Nara and Osaka for sure. These cities are truly gorgeous. Perhaps Kyoto is one of the most beautiful city that I've ever visited.. 

I went to Japan with Carita, my roomie and we were there for one week. We went to Kyoto first  and we stayed at Kyoto Khaosan Guesthouse. A little side story about this guesthouse: this guesthouse is really awesome and I would give this guesthouse 5 out of 5. Although the room is tiny, the bunkbeds are comfortable and if you want to hang out you could go to the lounge room which you can also meet other young travellers. This place also provides a lot of detailed travel information. The staff is also young, very nice and speaks good english. The only downside is the wifi sucks. Although they claim they have wifi, there is barely wifi in the room itself and the connection in the lounge room is also poor, escpecially if there is a bunch of people chilling out there. There are some common places where the wifi is better. But okay, you are there for travelling not for the internet. Anyhow, the gueshoust is also perfectly located in center Kyoto. 2 Min walk to a really nice shopping alley. 











Mange here is HUGE. 

Little cheesecake making machine. Didn't buy it though.. 

 DESERTS BABY! These Japanese people are damn good in making mouth watering displays.

But first, let me try to make a selfie with the deers





Japanese BBQ is all about using all the parts of the cow. Here I was barbecuing a part of a cow's fat.

More food. Last time okonomiyaki. 

I really would like to go back again in the future. The cities are so beautiful and amazing. The Japanese citizens were also extremely friendly and helpful. Some people would just come up to you to ask if they can help you. 

I Love Japan!
