Kyoto 2017 – Vermillion Cafe

On our way down Mt Inari we came across Vermillion Cafe, serving artisan coffee (with art!) and beautiful seating area on their porch.

The weather was cool – a low 20s day – and from where we were seated we could take in the fresh mountain air and admire the nature all around us.
Stayed there for close to an hour and would not have minded staying longer, if our stomachs and watches didn’t remind us that it was almost time for lunch…

Kyoto 2017 – Fushimi Inari Taisha

So begins the Kyoto 2017 Trip Chronicles.

Day 1 in Kyoto – we headed out early in the morning (as early as we could manage, given that we had just checked into our Airbnb at 12 midnight) to the famous Fushimi Inari shrine and found ourselves in the midst of tons of school children (on a Sunday morning!).

Apart from the famous and iconic orange tori gates which we managed to get some people-less shots of, there were other interesting sights on the way up and down Mt Inari too.
