Kyoto and Osaka

Henry and I celebrated New Year in Kyoto and Osaka. We went for 7 nights. It was realllllly beautiful and romantic.

Osaka Castle

Kinkaku-ji (Golden temple) in Kyoto

Fushimi-Inari Taisha, Kyoto.
Hundreds of red Tori gates line the hillside around the temple.

This is the GIANT Buddha statue that is inside the Daibutsu-den Hall in Nara (below) the largest wooden building in the world.

Below is one of the 1200 deer that roam the hillside of Nara around the temple.

You can feed them rice crackers that you buy for 150yen.

Below is Himeji-jo, Japans most beautiful Castle, built in 1550.
