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.

Snow, snow, snow..


Kyotoities were very excited to see a snow world when they woke up yesterday.
The photo above is the Kamo River of which Kyotoities love. The river bank shaped like a head of train transformed into a real Shinkansen! I wanted to take photos of mountains which surround Kyoto City, but, unfortunately, they were covered by a snowstorm.
After passing river, I visited Kennin-ji Temple, located in central downtown Kyoto. As I imagined, the zen garden of the temple was amazingly beautiful!


White snow let a simple brown garden without any leaves in winter so bright and sacred. I love the temple’s site with snow. Especially Kinkaku-ji (golden temple) and Ginkaku-ji (silver temple) are awesome!
I’d like to recommend that you come to Kyoto not only in spring with sakura but also in winter.
