Kyoto京都 , the place where most tourists fall in love with Japan.
Did you know : Kyoto, once the capital of Japan, is a city on the island of Honshu. It's famous for its numerous classical Buddhist temples, as well as gardens, imperial palaces, Shinto shrines and traditional wooden houses. It’s also known for formal traditions such as kaiseki dining, consisting of multiple courses of precise dishes, and geisha, female entertainers often found in the Gion district.
Questo è stato il mio primo volo intercontinentale, durato più di quattordici ore, con uno scalo ad Helsinki. Purtroppo non sono riuscita a riposare, ma in compenso disponevo di un computer di bordo completo di musica, film, serie TV, telecamere esterne e mappe! Dulcis in fundo, all'arrivo all'aeroporto del #Kansai sono stata accolta da #SuperMario ed in quel momento ogni fatica è stata ripagata: ero nella #TerraPromessa . 🛬 #Japan
