When it rains, don’t be afraid to wander the great indoors!
From the quiet park to the bustling shopping district
Cats, partying, incredible food… welcome to Friday in Japan!
Fish and temples and bikes – oh my!
Totoro and robots.. why not?
City and sunshine.. and Ferris wheel!
Rain just means you get to explore the great indoors!
International travel is never easy
A trip of a lifetime!
A visit to Kyoto isn’t complete without a trip through the stunning bamboo grove of Arashiyama. There is nothing more humbling than acres of majestic trees towering above your head, cutting thousands of completely vertical lines 115 feet into the sky.
Bamboo has been revered for its durability for centuries, and it grows incredibly fast, making it a popular renewable resource; the wood is used in thousands of applications. It is particularly important to the Japanese, who view it as a symbol of prosperity and see its simplicity as representing purity. Bamboo is unique in its elegance, which is why stalks frequent many zen-hopeful desks, but they are seldom seen in such magnificence.
