    Had to shelter because it was drizzling son of Dragon horse fan and I came to visit in the hope of staying beforehand ☆ ☆, ryozen Museum and crypt, either and was lost on the way back ^ ^ just the sun rises the rain appeared views overlooking the city of Nagasaki was views of Kyoto City overlooking Eastern from Dragon horse, and Mr. Nakaoka resting place ☆☆ Nagasaki chojiro is located and was about to make. In memory of the Dragon-horse, overlooking the distant future, came prominence I. So for instance, katsurahama Dragon horse statue was he overlooking ocean from home. ^ ^ reception is once again to Japan-, miniature scrolls, boots & Katana models to get the son delighted. However, was stopped in flight check, so those from afar kind of martial equipment toys is also suspicious ~ ~ (laughs) sent out by Yu-Pack from the airport.

    When the two-year ban to one year ban does not turn left, walk on, the East side is the mountain country Shinto shrine Torii. Through the Torii, need to get a wide ramp, this road is called the road to reform. This was to hold a memorial ceremony in the turbulent times of bakumatsu modernization shrines of the martyrs who were created in the Higashiyama, so visit the road also known as road to reform. Shrine is not material, into the Dong Shan cemetery needs, backed by 300 yen, if left unattended, coin directly into. Here is mainly used as a pseudo • end of meal, • silver soul let Yi shitennoji meal, take a look at the prototype GUI kogoro (Kido Koin) and the tomb of Sakamoto ryoma. Went into the Tomb when needed to climb, even though it is built of stone steps, but is still quite tired. Many steps on the ladder have leaf litter. And I'm not ready to this need to climb stairs, so nearly gave up 300 yen Orz GUI and his tomb is located at the top of the song. Sakamoto ryoma and Nakaoka Shintaro Ishihara at the entrance of the Tomb not far away. Is said to be ryoma's tombstone inscription of Mandarin kogoro. On the edge of Sakamoto ryoma and the bronze statue of Nakaoka Shintaro Ishihara. Also looked to the mountains west of Kyoto. In addition to the GUI and the Dragon horse, Ikeda is in the graveyard housing the martyrdom of all Patriots, and so on. Yuen said takasugi shinsaku, Kusaka Rachel's Tomb, in fact they where the body is buried in the Panasonic village school of Yamaguchi Prefecture. Tombstone here only as a sacrifice.

    The shrine itself, almost no foreign tourists. It is good to pray themselves quietly, praying for patriotism. 300 yen on the exit of station or anyone else writes about Sakamoto ryōma and Nakaoka shintarō Tomb tourist are restricted by pass and the back are kinda lonely form of bypass. Because the slope is steep in a kimono and seems to need is a little determination. Ryoma is pleased but I am sure

    Tend to get tired of many foreigners is the recent Kyoto wherever you go, just go in, this is quite off the beaten path. There is absolutely no foreigners on the grave, because foreigners are not interested at all in the little person. I watch from the grave of the Dragon-horse went to the Golden Week holidays, but fewer people really on the Kyoto scenery is FL was.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
