00:20 Train to Saga Arashiyama - The Arashiyama area is home to some of the most famous attractions in Kyoto, and so we took the train there in the morning. Unfortunately it was a very rainy day, so instead of going straight to the temple we instead decided to have lunch to see if the rain would clear.
1:38 Kyoarashiyama Ine (嵯峨とうふ 稲 本店) - This is a very famous restaurant in this area of Kyoto, and I think they specialize mainly in tofu and most of what they serve is even vegetarian Japanese food - with the exception of some eggs I think. I ordered the, Nonomiya Set, which cost 1,950 JPY ($16.22). It included all sorts of different Japanese vegetarian dishes including all sorts of tofu and the famous yuba, Japanese tofu skin. I did enjoy the entire Japanese vegetarian tofu meal, but all the food was a little on the plain side for me. However, it was still very nice, the presentation was beautiful, and the quality was outstanding.
8:43 Tenryu-ji Temple - 500 JPY ($4.16) - After our Japanese tofu lunch we continued on to the Tenryu-ji Temple, and it was still raining, but not nearly as hard as before. The temple is known for having one of the oldest Japanese gardens, and so that’s what I was really interested in seeing. It was quite beautiful.
9:47 Path of Bamboo - Located in Arashiyama, near the Tenryu-ji Temple is one of the most picturesque places and attractions in all of Kyoto, the Path of Bamboo - it’s a pathway that leads through a bamboo forest. The scene is quite beautiful, and definitely a good place to take some photos and enjoy nature.
11:29 Kinkaku-ji Temple - One of the final things we wanted to do in Kyoto on this day was visit the Kinkaku-ji Temple, and so we took a series of buses to get there, which all worked out smoothly. The Kinkaku-ji Temple was incredibly busy, so it wasn’t nearly as nice as it could have been had it been quiet and peaceful.
14:10 Japanese Supermarket Dinner - Finally for dinner, we headed back to our area of Kyoto, and we stopped by at a supermarket and bought some things to eat back at home. It’s fun to eat at restaurants, but it’s also really fun to buy food from a Japanese supermarket and eat it as well - there are so many good things to eat.
Thank you for watching Day 9 in Japan, where we did some attraction sightseeing in Kyoto, and also did some eating.
