Around Kyoto: Nishiki Market, Gion & Kiyomizudera

IMG_7499 A bit neglecting of the site for a while, because I was out for a short holiday on the Easter weekend, and a very busy week after that. Here are several shoots from Kyoto, mainly in Nishiki market, Gion and Kiyomizudera.

Nishiki market is a long alley of stores, filled with Kyoto amazing confectionaries and food. A must visit if you are a foodie. Try the warabi-mochi that has jelly-like texture, and taste many green-tea flavoured snacks.

Lastly, a slight walk from Gion, albeit a bit challenging on the inclination, the Kiyomizudera is a testimony of amazing carpentry in the olden days, where a great hall is build at a cliff face, with the foundation of giant logs.  IMG_7529 DSCF0783 IMG_7541 IMG_7545 DSCF0792 IMG_7552 IMG_7555 IMG_7557 IMG_7558 IMG_7566
