Kiyomizu-dera

It would not stop raining today! Luckily, that didn’t stop us enjoying Gion and it’s little shopping streets, through Maruyama Park, eating YUZU FLAVOURED ICE-CREAM! and then heading up to Kiyomizu-dera. I had been here in 2013, but the view from the top today with the rain showering over the hills was incomparable. Unfortunately it also meant that we were incredibly sticky and humid, so we ended up sticking to shopping centres in the afternoon before heading back to the hostel for a much-needed shower.

Luckily we were able to meet up with Theo and Jamie once more for CRAZY AWESOME yuzu ramen and pork dumplings, and then go walking around the streets of Kyoto. It’s been a relatively early night thank goodness…we’re not sure what we’ll get up to for our last day in Kyoto, but I’m sure it will be something tiring!
