The Kyoto Experience

There's nothing like traveling, especially to what feels like another world. The serenity of Japan's old capital, Kyoto offered us so much. I spent quality time gallivanting about and discovering new things with friends and family. On the way to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, I was honored in handing my novel to an actual "humanoid robot'' named Pepper!

"May I have a copy?" - "Yes!"

There was never a dull moment. I had so many enriching experiences. I tried to capture as much as I could. Here's a photo outside a Buddhist temple along Nishiki Market!

Eventually we made our way out beyond the central location of the city and visited Osaka when time allowed. Kyoto, Osaka, and their countrysides are truly a writer's dream. Beyond Gion, the famous geisha district, were some beautifully adorned temples and shrines. (*see prayer board below)

Peaceful dreamlike locations.
