Chasing The Sun

So… Today, I’m having so much fun with big bro, Ryu, and big bro’s friends, Shandy and Nyu. ๐Ÿ˜€ They wanted to go to Kiyomizudera, so me and Ryu take the role of a tour guide to show the way. ๐Ÿ˜€

We meet at Shijo Kawaramachi bus stop and take a bit walk to Gion to take a bus which takes us to Kiyomizudera. ๐Ÿ˜€ There’s 2 bus stop which you can take if you want to go to Kiyomizudera, it’s Kiyomizumichi bus stop and Gojo Zaka bus stop. ๐Ÿ™‚ We decided to take the Kiyomizumichi bus stop. ๐Ÿ˜€

The way to Kiyomizudera is a bit steep. It’s a hill after all. So yeah, it’s totally tiring. :/ When we arrived ย near the shopping district, Shandy and Nyu decided to buy some softcream first. ๐Ÿ˜€ And so we take a rest for a while. Gosh.. When was the last I take some excercise? It’s tiring already.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So, when Shandy and Nyu finished eating their softcream, we continue our trip. ๐Ÿ˜€

On the way I found this Sakamoto Ryoma metal pin gachaphon!!! Well, yeah, I’m a die hard Sakamoto Ryoma fan. XD I tried 3 times, and get 3 different kind of pin: Sakamoto Ryoma’s family crest, Ryoma’s chibi illustration, and Ryoma + Oryo (his wife)’s illustration. ๐Ÿ˜€ Perfect!

While walking, I realized there’s this Benkei and Yoshitsune figure on top of few stores with a clock on it. And you know what? Apparently it’s a mechanical doll! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ A Japanese karakuri!!! When the time is over, the doll move back to each side, leaving the middle to be empty. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ COOL!!!

Ah! I always love walking to Kiyomizudera. Why? There are a lot of food and snack stalls there! XD I always buy this Tako (Octopus) and Shisho (Perilla leaf) fish cake everytime I go to Kiyomizudera. ๐Ÿ˜€ It taste nice! :9

And so.. WE ARRIVED AT KIYOMIZUDERA!!!

Yeeeeiii~~!!! \(=w=)/

And what you must do when you arrived at Kiyomizudera? Act like a tourist and take a picture of course! And so that’s what we do ๐Ÿ˜€ Hehehehe

And so, after that, as usual, I’m taking snap shots everywhere! ๐Ÿ˜€ Somehow these two lady looks perfect near the big red gate. ๐Ÿ™‚

And apparently, it’s still spring in Japan, although it’s hot already. The ticket to Kiyomizudera changes depends on the season. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s worth to collect I think. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since we haven’t had any lunch nor breakfast, and tired (while waiting for another big bro’s friend), we decide to take a rest for a while and eat something. ๐Ÿ™‚ Zarusoba (cold soba) for big bro and Ryu, while Lemon Soda and Strawberry Milk Shaved Ice for me. ๐Ÿ˜€ YUMMY! :9

So.. after meeting big bro’s friend, we continue our trip to Ninenzaka – Sannenzaka.. But of course.. The culinary trip didn’t stop there! There’s still room for Kiyomizu Manju:

On the way to Sannenzaka (or Ninenzaka? I forgot.. :/), we take a bit detour and take a picture in front of Yasaka Pagoda. ๐Ÿ˜€ SENTAI TIME!!!

After that, another long walk until we reach Yasaka Shrine in Gion. ๐Ÿ˜€

Apparently, there are few food stalls there. ๐Ÿ˜€ Shandy and Nyu decided to buy some Apple Toffee and share some love~! XD

Hahaha.. Joking.. That’s just me asking them to pose like that. :p

And for me, some Jumbo Crab Stick!!! IT’S TOTALLY DELISH!!! X9

It was tiring but fun..! ๐Ÿ˜€ Even after those walking, we still continue with playing at Kamo river’s bank, since Nyu wants to try to soak his legs on the river. ๐Ÿ˜€ Well, Ryu ended up sleeping, while I’m having some nice time enjoying the wind. ๐Ÿ˜€

AAAHHH!!! OVER ALL, today was nice! Totally nice! ๐Ÿ˜€ย Can’t wait for the next crazy trip with the guys. ๐Ÿ˜€

I guess that’s all for now. ๐Ÿ˜€ Jya~ne!

Sincerely, Bena nDR
