I've been in Japan for almost two weeks but I'm finally seeing Japan for the first time. Wow! When I was in Tokyo I was reminded of other cities but here in Kyoto you could only be in Japan! The guesthouse where I am staying is down a tiny, narrow alley just off a street where geisha are out shopping. My room has walls made out of rice paper and perfect, artful d├ęcor! I'm in Japan-o-phile heaven! Of course, I'm in the very touristy area of Gion but there's nowhere I'd rather be staying. My guesthouse houses 10 guests and I have two female room mates who are nice, not loud and not annoying at all. I think I totally lucked out and someone might have to pack up my stuff and ship it over here.

One of the sweet innkeepers.


My neighborhood.

Fireworks that were so amazing it made me jump up and down and clap my hands.
