"do the following things: go to..." Kyoto Favorite Tip by flowergrl

Kyoto General: 117 reviews and 177 photos

Favorite thing: do the following things: go to Kibune for lunch on one of the restaurant platforms over the stream;
Go to Ohara to Sanzen-in and a walk around the country-side (unfortunately, Jakko-in was burnt by an arsonist recently, so you won't be able to see that);
Go to the Heian Shrine gardens; Walk around Yoshida-yama (leave at least an afternoon for this one!); Do all the other things people tell you in the tourist pamphlets. You'll probably end up needing months to do it all!

Fondest memory: I would have to say that my fondest memory of Kyoto is of my wedding party under the falling cherry blossoms. We had the bluest of skies that day, were joined by great friends, and drank excellent champagne. What can beat that?
