As we left Arayashima Bamboo Forest I decided to write a wish before heading off to go and see the World Cultural Heritage, Kinkakuji.

Along the way back to the station we saw all these souvenir and food shops so of course we had a look around before we left.

I was getting a bit hungry and saw this croquette shop so decided to try it out. Their croquettes are so crunchy on the outside and piping hot with the potato filling on the inside. They have different fillings besides the traditional potato ones.

Once we arrived at Kinkakuji there were heaps of tourist already heading in. Max and I paid our entrance fee then headed inside as well where the beautiful temple awaits peacefully. It started to rain so we couldn't see the reflection of the temple in the water too.

After spending a couple of hours at Kinkakuji, looking at the beauty we made our way back to Gion where we walked the traditional looking streets. Unfortunately we didn't see any geisha's or maiko's along the way.

When night fall started to come by we decided to walk back to Kyoto from Gion so we could past the Kamogawa (Kamo River) which has been seen in many jdrama's and anime.

I, myself just couldn't help but to take a photo looking into the distance with the night lights of Kyoto coming to life.

They also had a sushi roulette, so we played the game and guess who got the bomb.....I DID! First time ever as I usually get the miss when we have sushi roulette back home in Sydney.

The pork cutlet was so juicy and the sauce was so delicious I used the side of vegetables to pretty much clean the plate off.

Our full on day of exploring iconic places in Kyoto was tiring but amazing! We had an early night so the next day, which is our final day in Kyoto, we would be able to start our adventure bright and early. We had packed the following day with Strawberry Picking, Fushimi Inari Shrine, Best Tofu in Kyoto before heading to Osaka!
