On 08, Nov 2010 | In Selected Posts, Travel & Life | By sue

“Gochisosama deshita” is a phrase you can use to show your appreciation after a meal. It translates to “It was a feast.” And with that, I give you…more foodstuffs from Japan (oh, you thought I was done? THERE IS NO END to my Japan photos).

fushimi inari taisha

On 08, Nov 2010 | In Selected Posts, Travel & Life | By sue

Fushimi Inari Taisha is the head shrine of Inari, deity of business, rice, and foxes. It’s a really cool place—there are thousands of torii, or gates, leading up from the main shrine to many other shrines dotting the mountainside (the mountain is also called Inari).

kyoto temples and gardens

On 01, Nov 2010 | In Selected Posts, Travel & Life | By sue

One of my favorite days in Kyoto was the one we spent biking through Arashiyama (Western Kyoto). I haven’t biked in years, but I managed not to crash into anyone, and the scenery was perfect to experience by bike.

beautiful kyoto

On 28, Oct 2010 | In Selected Posts, Travel & Life | By sue

Been having a blast in Kyoto w/ Tanya – the weather has been outstanding and the sights absolutely gorgeous.
