Autumn Trip to Japan Part 1
I just back to Taiwan from my long trip in Japan. I traveled alone in Japan about 11 days, using shinkansen to move from city to city. For sure I bought JR pass to save transportation cost. I really love the autumn season in Japan, especially in Kyoto. Here I can share some photos I took there – but there are too many photos I want to share so I divide into two parts. Part 2 is still on going (editing), I will upload in the next article when I finished editing the photos. There are about 340 photos in part 1, so be patient for the loading time. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Waiting my flight in Cathay Pacific Business Class Lounge – it is my first time^^. The beef noodle and snacks are not bad (I mean so so 🙂 ).
Arrived in Kansai International Airport then I transferred to Kansai Airport Express Haruka (direct to Kyoto). I bought ICOCA & Haruka to save the cost (you may check this link for more details).
Changed to Keihan Line in Tofukuji Station then stopped in Gion Shijo station. My hostel in Kyoto is Bakpak Kyoto Hostel (near Gion Shijo station).

Next, I visited Eikan-do temple.
Next, I visited Ginkaku-ji temple (Silver Pavilion) – walk from Eikan-do temple and follow path of philosophy.

I visited Fushimi Inari on early morning but I took wrong train (I should take local train that stop in every station). Fortunately I only wasted 15 to 25 minutes.
Next, I visited Tofukuji Temple (not so far from Fushimi Inari).
I visited Kiyomizu-dera temple again – you can see clearly some construction works for this temple are on going.
I walked from Kiyomizu-dera temple to the next place, Kodai-ji temple.
Relaxed a little bit then I went to Maruyama park area.
