Chishaku-in Temple - Higashiyama Ward

The Chishaku-In garden is actually rather small and compact, but what there is of it is stunning. Carefully interwoven around some lovely temple buildings and tucked up against one of the many mountains in the area, the gardens consist of small raked-sand zen gardens, ponds, lazy fish, and many flowers artfully scattered inbetween. The temple buildings are mostly open and covered so you can stretch out and relax while watching the little koi swim by.

Izuju sushi - Higashiyama Ward

Eat authentic style Kyoto sushi! The mackerel sushi is delicious. The rice was soft and the mackerel itself was so tasty.

Kiyomizu-dera - Higashiyama Ward

It offers great views of Kyoto from the viewing platform and even though it was touristy the place is so serene and grand it's worth a visit. I don't know if it was because it was my first temple visit in Japan but I was so facinated by the architecture of the temple and what kind of smaller temples there were in the compound and the carvings on the structures and how each building was designed.

Hanamikoji Dori - Higashiyama Ward

We were really excited to visit Kyoto because it is one of the places where the quaint, traditional, and cultural side of Japan can be experienced. I was all ready to see the temples, walk along the neat little streets crammed with tiny shops with wooden sliding doors. And that's what we did.
