Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Gold fish & Osaka Castle

Rainy cloud is just here in Kyoto. Yes! Rainy season has started a few days ago.
Most humid and most depressive season of the year.

But, this year, one thing added into my morning routine.
I’ve started raising gold fish in the garden, which my son picked them at a local shrine festival. Although two was died soon after putting them into a water basin in the garden, remainder are going well now. Even if it’s rainy, I willingly go outside to check their condition. It’s fun!

Sometimes some birds come to the garden to attack my lovely fish. I have to check about it from the room..

By the way, have you ever been to Osaka Castle?
I took my son to there last weekend because recently he is interested in Japanese history especially the era called “Sengoku” -the era of battle in the 16 and 17th century.
Young boys seem to be attracted by strong samurai such as Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

The service of wearing a costume is available like a photo above. (¥300) (This is my son, transforming into Sanada Yukimura who fought with Tokugawa Ieyasu at the battle called “Osaka-natu-no-jin” in the 17th century.)

Oh! that’s a good timing!
The Museum of Kyoto (京都文化博物館) is now holding an exhibition about the battle of Sengoku.
Please check the detail on GTK art page. If you’re interested in it, a few invitation tickets are available.

We’re going to Hikone Castle in Shiga next time!
