Photographer’s Dream

japan kyoto sunset

One of the most beautiful places I have been wathing sunset. Mount Inari in Kyoto. The mountain full of red torii gates. I love this photo because of that photobombing camera man. His dark precemce somehow fits in the view. I don’t have any specific story for this photo. In my two months in Kyoto I ate many dinners in this exact spot and enjoyed the sun setting.

Autumn and Apology

With this pretty photo I wanted to share yet again another apology. My new student life has been so busy that writing everyday to this blog just haven’t been possible. But don’t worry! Starting from today I will continue sharing cool (mostly travel) photos everyday. And I have even planned few upcoming trips for me to do in between my school days. So stay tuned for more adventures!

Monkey -hell- Park

kyoto_view

One of Kyoto’s main tourist attractions is Monkey Park. (WARNING! The name should really be Monkey Moutain that you have to hike up warning don’t wear ballerinas!) The hike up was torture and I effectively destroyed my only pretty shoes but it was totally worth it. And not even for the monkeys but for the view.

The photo is taken from the top where I hanged out with the other tired tourists and punch of crazy monkeys. Kyoto looks so beautiful when looked from high. This photo doesn’t even show of it’s beauty.

The Castle?

The building in this photo is Osaka castle. At first the Japanese castles confused me because they are far from the type of castles that come to my mind at first. I think princesses and knights riding white horses and living happily ever after.

After spending a few months in Japan I kind of started to love these kind of castles. Look at the photo! Isn’t it beautiful?

Overcoming Fears=Traveling

osaka

I’m scared of high places but for me traveling means overcoming my fears. So nothing was stopping me from going to swinging glass booth in huge Ferris wheel when I got free ticket to go there in Osaka, Japan.

I was so scared that even moving felt like deathly affair. BUT the view was amazing and I took amazing photos to remember the moment later on. And I was brave enough to visit another Ferris wheel in Osaka later at that day.

Cool Museums

Japan took my museum expectations to another lever. Maybe it’s because I am from tiny Finland but every museum I visited left me with awe. When I went to this one in Ueno park I had (surprisingly) good luck and it was free admission day.

Oh, I almost forgot… I got to see real mummy! #historynerd

Autumn Day

kyoto

This was the sight I saw on so many mornings while in Kyoto. I loved to see the pagoda’s peak. It would wish me good morning glowing in any weather behind the trees and buildings. This day was the first one I felt really like autumn. It had been raining and my sneakers got all muddy and wet.

The autumn weather almost got me to stay in the warm hostel kitchen shipping my millionth cup of tea. However the rain stopped I decided to walk aimlessly in the neighborhood. At that time I hadn’t yet visited the temple itself but just seen the pagoda from afar. It seemed like perfect day to go and see what this place had to offer.

After too many lakes formed after the rain I was standing next to the big building. I was lucky like I had been so many times before on my travels. There was free exhibition about old paintings and myths. I didn’t understand a lot but it was interesting. And the locals wondering what I did here made my gloomy day a little better.

Torii gates in Modern World

torii_portti

Before going to Japan I had learned in school about the religions, shrines, torii gates etc. I had also learned about the “modern” Japan like anime, music and the big scary Tokyo. What I didn’t (as stupid person) predict was that those two worlds met everywhere.

This photo is one example of the things surprising me. It’s kind of cool how the torii gates, old shrines and temples can be in the middle of modern city.
