Back in time in Kyoto

Kyoto exceeded all my expectations; walking through the older districts it feels like I’m back in the Shogun era. The lovely temples, the Japanese girls in yukata and the small streets give it all an authentic feel. Throughout the whole city you’ll find many temples with perfectly maintained gardens.

Finally made it to Japan

After all these years I finally made it to Japan! I just couldn’t do all these Asian countries and just skip my all-time-favorite. And so far, Japan isn’t that expensive as everyone says it is. You have a decent hotel room for €40 a night and food wise you can make it as cheap or…
