Weekend in Kyoto (Day 2)

I left hotel early to attend the Buddhist ceremony.

Hotel is conveniently near to Subway Karasuma Line Karasuma Station.

It’s only two stations away from JR Kyoto Station to catch JR Biwako Line for Ishiyama Station.

This is my first experience to attend Gomataki (Special Buddhist Ceremony for Prayer).

I’m honored and blessed to be invited to the event.

I suffered during the ceremony because I sat Seiza (Japanese traditional way to sit by folding leds).

My legs became numb…but it was worth it.

After returned to hotel, checked in again.

Kyoto is a popular place for Japanese and foreign tourists; therefore, we couldn’t stay in the same room due to hotel reservation status.

But it’s fine with us because we could enjoy two types of room during my Kyoto stay.

Tonight, we are staying at Japanese style room.

We had Kyoto cuisine at Irifune, Karasuma Kyoto Hotel, Kyoto.

Mom and I enjoyed chatting over Kyoto Japanese Sake, Kagura.

I was full and I like window shopping; we went out for walk.

Kyoto is a nice city for walk, just simply for walking.


Currently living in Tokyo. I would love to share feelings, food, places and things that I do!!
