8 reasons to visit Kyoto right now + 3D2N Kyoto itinerary | 65CityGirl

I visited Japan in 2016 during the autumn season and it was the most amazing experience ever. Here’s my attempt of documenting my Japan trip in 3 parts, since my trip was about 13 days long and it’s too hard to document what I love across Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka in one post.

Since I spent much lesser days in Kyoto, my reasons to visit will be way more specific than that of Tokyo. Here goes…

[3D2N itinerary can be found at the end of the post]

Reason #1: Fushimi Inari Shrine

You probably have seen pictures of its thousands of vermilion colored torii gates, but let me assure you, its definitely still worth to see it in person. It is absolutely breathtaking – both literally and figuratively with plenty of stairs – to walk through the torii gate covered hiking trail. For photography, it is recommended to proceed further up the route, as the crowd generally disperses along the way.

 

Reason #2: Arashiyama Bamboo Forest

Another popular location often seen in photos representation Kyoto is the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest. Like the Fushimi Inari Shrine, this is also another location where no picture can truly capture the feeling of being there. Standing amidst the tall soaring bamboos of the forest truly transports you to a completely different time and place. Do try to visit earlier in the day before the hordes of tourists come by for maximum impact of the tranquility of the forest.
