JAPAN! Blog-on-the-Spot! Day 8: Arashiyama & Kinkakuji Shrine

We visited one of the most beautiful sight in Kyoto, the bamboo forest in Arashiyama area. Walking through the quiet and cooling bamboo forest is really fantastic!
Had to grab a local snack. This is like our 'satay' but not meat. It is actually sticky rice coated with a layer of sweet soy sauce.
Hope on board the Saga Romantic Train and enjoyed the scenic mountains, river and rural village of Arashiyama area.
The last temple that we visited was the beautiful Kinkakuji Temple, which is also called Golden Pavillion. It earned its named because the temple is made of gold! I loved how it glittered in the evening sun.

Sometimes, we need a little fun too! We decided to try our luck in this game where the wrong jumps means falling into the river!
