Me at 清水寺
A love shrine at 清水寺。Didn't know there was one. Although this is my second time here.
Those of you who watched Memoirs of the Geisha may find this picture on top familiar. It's where the young girl (the girl acting as Zhang Ziyi when she was small), ran through a whole row of tori gates. Yupz, this is the shrine in which that scene was filmed. We reached there about 5 plus in the evening. It's out of the city, thus kinda 田舎, so it took us abit of time to get there. So, by the time we walked like half of the shrine and passed half of the tori gates, it was quite dark. Going on to 7pm. It was kinda scary. Like seriously. We were one of the only ones left walking the shrine and the lights were dim, etc, etc. Atmosphere was eerie. Oh, and there was one point, we saw this old guy at one of the breaks of the tori gates. And he was facing the place where people wash hands and drink the water from the scoop, he zipped up his pants! We were horrified. I mean...did he like pee in there? eww...
That kinda ends the Kyoto trip. Then we met up with my Hyogo friends too! Yay! Have not seen them for so long and they are still as crazy as ever. Haha... We went all the way to Kobe just to meet them for dinner and almost could not make it back in time! Had to call the hotel, coz there was curfew. -_-'''皆ありがとう！久しぶりだね。皆忙しいけど、わざわざ私に会って、ありがとう！それに、皆の家も遠いけど、神戸に行って、ありがとうね！本当に楽しかった。皆にも一度会って、良かった！元気そうで、良かったね！また今度機会があって、兵庫に遊び行く！
