Side Trip to Nara

November 20 Saturday Kyoto - Toothache and itches woke me before dawn. Going down to the kitchen, I discovered it was before 6am. The only two people in the lounge were at the computers. Another man appeared to be crashing, sleeping on the floor at the back and side of the TV (probably...

Cultural: Public Transit

Public transit is the obvious way to go for any tourist and the system of Japan is really good. In fact, if a train is late even by a few seconds the conductor is expected to hand in an written apology. Quite different from the trains at home. The train everyone talks about is of course...

The pain known as large baggage (or: Back to Kyoto)

We finally arrived at Kyoto, after dragging our baggage through multiple train stations and on a bus. Luckily the owner of our guest House in Tama Plaza gave us a lift to the station there, one problem less to solve. The staff from Fuji is a really nice souvenir, but a pain to...

Kyo no Tanabata

I am back to Kyoto for two nights to tie up some loose ends (mainly culinary), attend the Kyo no Tanabata festivities and use my rail pass to its fullest *g* Got the guest house, checked in and was off again. One of the major advantages of having a home-base is the fact that you can travel...

About temples, shrines, pavilions and castles

I have been going around quite a lot now, visiting temples, shrines, pavilions and castles and I have to say the clear winners are the shrines for me. True, temples often have astonishing and really massive gates and halls and beautiful screen paintings and of course exploring a castle has...

Culinary: Local Specialties - Part 1

I would like to show you some of the local food I had the pleasure to try in this post, here we go: Tonkatsu Basically fried pork chop/loin. An easy and popular dish in Japan, it probably has as many variations as Wiener Schnitzel has in Austria. The one in the picture was more on the side...

Culinary: Matsuri Stalls

In the aftermath of the Gion Matsuri I would like to speak about the stalls there. Lots of different food is sold at every matsuri, some of which became the trademark of these summer festivals. There are also other stalls around, like I mentioned in my post about the Gion Matsuri, so I will...
