Missing the Beautiful Autumn of Kyoto 0

Posted on January 27, 2010 by dorisch

This morning, as I was staring at a photo taken during my trip to Kyoto in 2008, I found myself missing the beautiful autumn. Has it been that long that I visited Kyoto?

I can now understand why thousands of travelers flock to Kyoto during autumn, foreigners and locals. The leaves were golden and there was so much energy and life released from the vibrant colours of the maple leaves. They were simply awesome. I marvelled at the creation of the Almighty! The culture in Kyoto is rich with any traditional architecture echoing this beauty. Though I only spent a few days in Kyoto and Osaka, I had fond memories of this lovely city.

I have the habit of checking out travel and life insurance quote before my travel holiday. This is on top of those tedious search on best accommodation deals in the destination city I am planning to travel to. I have no plans for any vacation yet to date but I know it will be happening soon.

Hotels Combined

In the last few weeks, my little boy had been telling me how much he wanted to be back in Japan again! I find myself liking kyoto and osaka a little more than tokyo. Tokyo can be very crowded in certain places and though kyoto isn’t that big in terms of land space, it is a very pretty city.

Shopping in kyoto and osaka is just as great. You can find a wide array of cultural and most modern stuff all in one place! From shopping for sexy lingerie to japanese silk to the latest electronic gadgets, you can count on a wide choice of styles and designs in kyoto and osaka. Let me just warn you that if you are geared to shop in any japan city, make sure you bring enough cash and put on good walk shoes. Be expected to shop for hours in the busy malls and be ready for the tight crowds during the weekends.

Take a trip to kyoto and osaka, you won’t be disappointed.

Who has the best hotel deals?

I have been spending the last few days looking for hotels in Kyoto during our November family travel but somehow I can’t seem to find any rooms! It’s hard to believe that so many popular hotels (even the big chains) are all fully booked during the last week of november – unbelievable.

Plus, the hotel rates in Kyoto during November are categorized as ‘peak’ due to the autumn color foliage which will be a sight to behold. I used to think that as long as you have the budget, you can buy anything you like, whether it’s best diet pills or the best located hotel accommodation, or even the best looking shoes but we know that it’s not true. Sometimes, money can’t buy what you desire and in my case, I can’t seem to get a nice hotel during that November time period – Looks like I have to keep on searching!

Find the best deal, compare prices and make a smart accommodation booking for your Kyoto trip!
