Once we finished settling into our place, Steph and I decided to head to Gion, so we took a bus which took us to the very end of Shijo Dori.
The shrine was small but beautiful! Every corner you turn you will be able to take amazing shots! After a nice time taking photo's and enjoying the view we headed down onto the streets!
We also picked up some matcha ice-cream. Simple but delicious!
Then we headed into the traditional street of Gion. Here you will find many traditional tea houses where maiko's and geisha's will appear~
After our visit on Gion Street, we crossed the Kamo River and went into a narrow alley way just parallel to the river to find dinner.
We ordered a seafood and pork belly okonomiyaki and it was really delicious and filling. Steph and I decided to pair our meal with a drink so I got a refreshing peach sake cider and Steph just got plain old Calpis.
Today I didn't get much studying done since I went out to yumcha with my mum and relative who was visiting from Hong Kong to attend my cousin's wedding. My cousin had his ceremony with friends yesterday but will be having the family banquet this coming weekend. Before then I have one last test on the Wednesday before I can fully enjoy the holidays!!!
