Japan – Kyoto

This post is late. That’s my fault…not Ana’s. I’ve been a bit lazy about blogging this past year (read: 3 years), but as they say – better late than never.

So we went to Japan this past Chinese New Year and we spent a considerable amount of time in Kyoto. If you’ve never heard of Kyoto then you probably don’t love planet earth and think global warming is a conspiracy conceived by the democrats. I’m talking about the Kyoto Protocol (a UN treaty to get members to reduce greenhouse emissions (FYI: the US signed, but didn’t ratify this…we are one of the select few to truly not care…’Murica!!!).

Anyways, I’m telling you this because Kyoto is truly a city worthy of hosting such a conference. I’ve never seen such greenery within a city and incorporated into the way the city is designed. It was truly beautiful. Couple that with the fact that Kyoto is one of Japan’s oldest and most historically significant cities, thus housing several THOUSAND (yes, you read that correctly – thousand) different temples, it is a magnificent city to immerse oneself in  nature, history and Japanese culture.

We visited many different castles, temples and forests, of which I cannot remember the names. But rather than me write a bunch about Kyoto…it is best experienced through photos.  Enjoy.
