From Kyoto station, you may take the train heading to JR Arashiyama via the JR Sagano Line. Upon arrival there are nearby shops that have bicycles for rent. Or if you're too kuripot like us, you may walk towards the Path of Bamboo which is approximate 10-15 mins away from the station.
Before anything else, merienda muna.
We ordered matcha ice creams and took photos (na naman) with locals. It's kinda sad we didn't see mga legit na geishas. Pero sige, pwede na yan tutal naka kimono naman sila. Hehe.
Recommended mode of transportation around Arashiyama are bicycles (less than ¥2,000 per hour) or rickshaws.
I wasn't able to ask or check how much a roundtrip rickshaw ride cost but based from this picture parang it looks expensive. HAHAHA. Plus, nakakahiya naman if papahila kami dun sa driver. Baka mabigatan siya sa amin. LOL.
Besides, we prefer to walk. Healthy na we all lose weight pa. Hihihi.
Speaking of losing weight. Hi Faye, diet na tayo. Wala na tayo leeg sa photos natin. Lol.
Here's a stupid selfie of us while hanging out at the Togetsukyo Bridge. Dear Jay, mag emote ka naman! Kailangan laging naka smile?! Haha.
After 15,000 steps (according to my iPhone's health app), we're back in Osaka and rewarded ourselves with a dinner buffet at a restaurant in Yodobashi Osaka.
