Fifht place

by nuppe

We're 14 Norwegians, aged 21-55 :) going to Japan to study, and feel and understand from 26. of July to the 24. of August. Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara and Hiroshima is in the plan. And Okinawa we thought, but maybe moving South won't work, and we should find a substitute for these five days. Good suggestions for a town/area/event that could compliment the others for this period?

Hello,nuppe,
Welcome back to Japan!

How about overnight trip to Koyasan?
It's near from Kyoto/Nara area and
there are temple inns in Koyasan.
Temples offer their rooms to tourists.
Not only Buddhists but also other religion people can stay at temple inns.
At some temple inns, you can participate the morning prayer.

Hope this helps :-)

Thank you, Ayurin. I'll try to go there myself if I can't convince the group. And it's a little puzzle, cause the whole trip should be accepted as the basis for a little academic study. So we will need both depth and variety. But thank you once more. You're still going strong. I'm so impressed!

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Things You See Walking Down The Steet

by devmicha

This may not be completely local but something you will run into anywhere in Japan.
When you walk down the street or go to a phone booth.... In the public toilette or outside any shop or bar...
You will see the posters for prostitutes... Take your pick!!! It comes in the mail!!!
Naked girls all over the place!
My favourite comes when the photos are next to a beautiful old house or restaurant.

Matsubara-dori Street Shopping

by Rabbityama about Souvenir Shops

This street is one of the most popular places for tourists to purchase souvenirs in Kyoto, mainly because it is the street leading up to the famous Kiyomizu Temple, which most visitors to Kyoto will visit.

There are many shops, and although many of the same items can be found in each shop, individual shops often have a few unique items, as well. If you have the time, it is wise to shop around a little. You can often find the same item for a cheaper price at another store!

This is also a good place to sample some local specialties. In particular, Honkenishio Yatsuhashi, located just below Kiyomizu Temple's entrance, sells the most delicious and fresh raw yatsuhashi in Kyoto! There are a few other locations (like the Temmaya arcade area), but this one is convenient for most people! The yatsuhashi all have a delicious filling and there are many flavors, such as cinnamon, strawberry, peach, mango, etc. The only downside is that it must be consumed within a week of purchase, so it's best to eat it while you're here!

Ponto-cho's terraces - the place for sushi!

by Pixiekatten about Pontocho district

If you're up for sushi and feel like trying it a bit more exclusive than a conveyor belt, head for Ponto-cho and have a set meal at one of the terraces. Classy and a treat for the tastebuds!

If you dont feel like a set meal and paying extra for sitting on the terrace the food is just as good indoors. Ask to sit at the counter to see the chefs in action!

Temple by the hills

by konniemario

If there's only one temple that you can visit in Kyoto then let it be Kiyomizu-Dera. Despite the fact that it's becoming one of the highly commercialized temples in recent years, thanks (no thanks) to the endless shops by the 2 slopes that lead to it, it's still one of the most remarkable landmark of the city. It was first built in 798 but the present building was reconsutructed dating from 1633. The temple is made entirely of woods.

The main hall has a huge veranda that is supported by hundreds of pillars and juts over the hillside. Aside from the temple itself, other main attractions would be the Otawa-no-taki, where visitors drink sacred waters believed to have therapeutic powers (yes, I did line up for that one, too!) There's also the lover's stones on two sides and one has to walk from one to the other with eyes closed. If you succeeded, then you'll be ok in the love arena. It was fun seeing people actually do that!

Only complaint about this temple is that being the most popular temple, it's almost always crowded with tourists. We came rather early in the morning and it was already packed.

Give your love life some heavenly help

by K1W1

Just behind the Kiyomizu Temple is the Jishu Shrine, complete with love rocks. It is believed that if you can walk from one to the other with your eyes closed, then true love is very near. You can also buy a love fortune if you can't wait to find out about what lies ahead.
