Japan: Day 5 - Kiyomizu Temple *pic heavy*

Continuing with my Japan posts, because we don't have school today due to parent teacher interviews
(ஐ╹◡╹)ノ  This will be picture story about a few temple's around Kyoto.  Emma was our 'tour guide' and took us to many places around Kyoto, she had studied at my school for a few years before going back to Japan so we met up, and it was good to she her after about 2-3 years.

Famous Kyoto radishes

with Emma
we were still half way there despite the 15min or so walk



 Kiyomizu-dera!
 Apparently its going to be a bad year for:
females turning: 18, 32, 36
males turning: 24, 41, 60

 Little buddha's with aprons?

Amazing dango, matcha etc


SNOW!! my first sight of snow (இдஇ`。)

 I had tempura udon, and the prices were so cheap!

Samurai puppy :3

A very busy matsuri nearby


 Another temple that was hosting the 'Coming of Age Day' - 成人の日


We then took the bus back to Kyoto station, then mum and I had a delicious dinner in some restaurant on the sixth floor of Yodabashi, it was a very busy day with heaps of walking around the grand Kiyomizu-dera.



I'll be back with more posts about my Japan trip next time! 
Thanks for reading
