The internet told me & my wife to take a walk to Gion when we're in Kyoto. But hell with those internet sayings, me & my wife decided to go to Arashiyama where you can find the Tenryuji Temple & The Bamboo Grove (actually the Bamboo Grove weren't that great at all, as the bamboos aren't as tall as you'd seen in pictures). Arashiyama is full of good foods along the road, and the views are beautiful too. You can find some of the finest "mochi"s here, as well as those traditional ramen or noodles and the cheap hot snacks. The only thing that's a bummer was that most of the shops don't accept Cards, and the ATM (if there were any) was really hard to find. Well I'm not that good in writing this down, so let me just show you the random snaps from Arashiyama. Make sure you stop here when you're in Kyoto, and bring cash money.
^we didn't know why we decided to enter this shop that turned out to be some kind of beauty treatment shop
^near the train station, there's a Piano Museum that got a Steam Locomotive in front of the museum

^there's a long queue at this little shop where they sell unique hot skewers of squid produce with the mix of cheese, crabs, and so much more.
^magical umbrellas that shows unique patterns when the rain falls. damn.
^can you feel the friendliness of Arashiyama from her smile?
