Recommendation by Wabisavi
After 3 weeks of travelling, I was finally back in Kyoto, and it did feel like returning home. There is so much to see and do in Kyoto (especially during the autumn season), a dedicated list would not be enough. I'll briefly cover some iconic spots I visited during this trip, and leave the rest for another list. 𝗡𝗮𝗿𝗮, City of Deers, is one of the most famous spots in Kyoto to enjoy maple leaves. Truth is, unless you are a huge deer fan, the park itself is not the only highlight of this location. Temples abound, and ancient buildings from the time when Nara was Capital of Japan. Everything is spread out, so visiting everything in one day is impossible. Next time, I will take more time to explore the beautiful surroundings. Expect massive crowds starting 10am. I felt a bit bad for the deers, wondering if this environment is actually healthy for them.
