Swiss grandchildren came to my home to stay during summer vacation. One day we decided to go to Kyoto. We will take a train called Shinkansen (bullet train) and travel to Kyoto.
The Shinkansen (new trunk line) is a network of high-speed railway lines in Japan, starting with the Tōkaidō Shinkansen (515.4 km) in 1964.
We get on the subway Karasuma line (烏丸線), get off at the second Shijo station (四条駅), and then we will go to the reserved ryokan (旅館 inn) on foot.
Bukkō-ji (佛光寺 Temple of the Buddha’s Light) was founded and officially opened by a disciple named Ryōgen in 1324, but by the 15th century, Bukkō-ji was the largest and most successful temple. And its network of branch temples extending throughout the provinces of western Japan.
Chōzuya; place for ritual cleansing of hands and mouth with water when visiting shrines or temples.
Walking approximately 200m from Bukkō-ji, you will arrive at the reserved inn.
Situated a 10-minute walk from lively Kawaramachi area, Kyomachiya Ryokan Sakura Urushitei offers Japanese-style accommodation with modern facilities and traditional design. It provides a tour desk and a bar on the ground floor. Free WiFi is available in all areas.
The inn staff is very kind and friendly. They speak English well. If you come to Kyoto, I can recommend this inn. This is the e-mail address. firstname.lastname@example.org
After this we will go to Fushimi Inari Taisha (伏見稲荷大社Fushimi Inari Shrine).
