Shirahige torii

As with everything in life, all good things come to and end, and this is the final post on our trip to Japan.

It was bittersweet to go through all the posts after more than a year. Have a bunch of great memories from this journey, but also feels oddly distant. More distant than before, for some reason. And maybe that’s Japan doing its magic on my brain once again, calling me in.

And just like that, it was our final day in Kyoto. Luckily, we were in for a treat, since Atsuko had invited us to to join her on a car ride through the mountains around Kyoto. By the end of the day, near Shirahige shrine, a beautiful torii emerged from Biwa lake.

    Só agora depois das férias é que tive tempo para vir comentar. As fotos de todos os dias estão excelentes. Já estou á espera da próxima viagem para ver mais fotos :D Mas tens sorte, sempre que vais a Kyoto vês umas maikos :D

      Tenho impressão que todas as maikos que tenho nas fotos são falsas. Vi uma sim da última vez, mas muito privada, nem deu para sacar foto.

        Provável. Acho que realmente a cada ano que passa mais este negócio tem crescido. Muita gente veste kimonos em Kyoto. Se calhar já há também maikos e/ou geishas.
