Japan Day 8

Japan Day 8

Today we went to Kinkakuji Temple, which is also known as the Golden Pavilion. After fighting with the other tourists to get a decent photo of the Temple, we took a stroll through the nearby garden path, and explored some more nearby temples and shrines. After some prayers were said and green tea ice cream consumed, we headed to our next destination, Nijo Castle. Upon buying our tickets, we were notified that we only had 20 minutes to see the castle since it was going to be closing soon. We decided to fight the power, and take our sweet-ass time and really enjoy the sights. After an hour of strolling through cherry blossom gardens, we decided to call it a day and head back to our hotel. On the way back, we realized that since arriving in Japan, we hadn’t actually had any sushi yet and needed to address this issue. We decided to eat at a little sushi restaurant owned by a lovely old couple. There’s something really comforting and intimate eating at places like this were sushi isn’t on a robotic conveyor belt, as it is hand-made as you order. Needless to say, the sushi from this place was phenomenal, and I could see why quiet little places like this are still running.
