Posted on July 30, 2008 by

A lil girl dressed as a geisha stood by the street
transporting us back in time,
to the ancient traditional times of Japan..

Kiyomizu temple overlooks the city..

with our kawaii Japanese friends..
it was funny speakin to them in Spanish, in Japan.
Heiko absolutely loved the kneelin part of Japanese traditions..

An extremely touristic picture of us n the geisha..

Byo-do Inn
shimmerin under the evening sun..

A great restaurant for Yakitori (bbq skews)..

Beautiful ladies clad in Kimonos

we dig these Tatami styled restaurants..

SAKE! We all loved it!
what better way to indulge in some true Japanese culture?
