Kyoto – Japan

Oh boy… This city! If you love temples, shrines and everything related to Buddhism and Japanese culture, then you will fall in love with this city! I visited all the popular temples and some smaller ones, each of them so different and beautiful in its own way. Still there would have been even more for…

Hiroshima – Japan

Hiroshima, an historic city even though most of the historic buildings where destroyed. It has a different vibe than the other cities I have been to in Japan, but I think it was absolutely worth to go! It is not just about the sad part of history, but some temple areas got reconstructed and give…
