Uji showcase Cormorant fishing during the summer months. We were intrigued so visited during the Obon holidays.
On July 15th I attended Tamatsukuri Inari shrine summer festival (my local shrine) and the following day in pre-tyhoon weather went to Gion Matsuri in Kyoto.
April 26th we had a lolita meet up in Uji, Kyoto arranged by the lovely Grace.
I was lucky enough to join a kimono enjoy lesson in Kyoto during Golden week.
After 2.5 years in Japan I finally went to one of my favourite brands tea parties!!!!
So, how was it…?!
The plum blossom has started to bloom these last few weeks, most of it isnt even in full bloom yet…but I did manage to get a few nice pictures from Osaka Castle park, Expo 70 Park and Kitano Tenmangu Shrine Kyoto.
J and I got married on Christmas Eve in Kyoto 2009, 5 years ago! Since we lived in Osaka we have made it a tradition to go back to the shrine we got married at and pray.
This year we went a little earlier than usual as we couldn’t be together for our anniversary or Christmas.
