枫遍京都:清水寺


京都是日本赏枫第一首选,因京都赏枫名所特別多,再加上古都有着浓浓的日本味儿,所以11月底,国外和国内的旅客都会大量涌进,感受枫红古都的美。

火紅的秋天中,清水寺是京都数一数二的赏枫景点。我也是冲着这些枫叶而来的。

导游安排了我们乘坐子弹火车,从新大阪到京都。我没有什么兴趣,因为之前已经在上海乘搭过速度比子弹火车更快的磁浮列车,倒觉得在地铁站挤在人群地行走,还真的辛苦。为什么辛苦? 继续往下看就懂了!

子弹火车。短短15分钟的车程,要价2000yen (RM80)。

到了京都站,我们看见超吸引人的水果派。这个橱窗所展示的都是模型而已,真是假以乱真。看了真令人垂延三尺!


DSC02702ba
由于我们才用过早点,而且午餐会有炸猪排套餐,所以只好放弃!你别小看这水果派,一片(不是一个哦)的价钱是接近700yen,马币大约28零吉。

来到了前往清水寺的小吃和手信街,二条板.三条版。因为这一天是公共假期,所以狭窄的道路挤得水泄不通。真的好像逛夜市一样。不过在日本“塞人”,你不会嗅到别人的汗臭味,也不用担心不法之徒趁火打劫。日本的治安真的很好。

各式各样的手信

来到清水寺了!穿上和服的我像不像日本女生呢?卡哇依吗?就是因为穿上日式木屐,所以在地铁站加速行走赶火车真的很累!


DSC02951ba
想要避开人群拍一张背景没有人的照片根本就是不可能。


DSC02955bc
好美啊!有木有?我是说秋叶,不是我啦!秋叶的日文是“koyo”,而枫叶的日文是“momiji”。


DSC02941fa
看见很多穿上和服的日本游客,所以就趁机和他们拍了一些照片

枫叶啊!是不是美呆了? 现在正是赏枫的最佳时候!只可惜天空刚下过雨,灰灰一片的。如果有蓝天的衬托,我想那就更完美了!

来到了清水舞台,景色真的很迷人!要拍照也是要挤进人群哦!

太感动了

这里有好多祈愿牌


DSC03016b
清水寺的后侧有一处叫“地主神社”的小神社,以“良缘祈愿”而闻名。

清水寺的神奇建筑,这里完全不用一根钉子建造而成


DSC03054b
美人美景。我逗自己开心啦!因为早上5点30分就爬起床化妆做头发,还有就是这个和服,足足费了20分钟穿上。说不美我会很伤心咯!

和导游合照


DSC03065b
哇!滿到爆炸的幸福紅味!


DSC03068b
看见我后面的和服女生吗?有机会来京都的话别错过和服体验哦!清水寺附近都有出租和服的店铺,价钱我就不晓得啦


DSC03124ba
我在这里捡了好几片枫叶,拿回家做纪念嘛!


DSC03137b
我和我的枫叶

小池塘里的红枫倒影也是另有特色的美。


DSC03150b
接近黄昏时刻的金黄色阳光让我觉得好温暖喔!


DSC03140b
枫情万种的清水寺,真叫人舍不得离开。


DSC03158b
来京都当然要吃这里的抹茶雪糕咯。抹茶加上牛奶的香味,真的好好吃哦!



看过了这篇枫文,有没有觉得日本的秋天很美? 这篇只是给你热热身,好戏在后头呢!

Osaka Castle & Shinsaibashi (大阪城公园 & 心斎橋)


Finally here's the first blog post of my Japan trip.


Are you ready?


For your info, we landed at Kansai International Airport, Osaka.

According to my tour guide, Kansai International Airport is the world's first offshore airport, stands on a man-made island. It’s about 5km off the coast. So from far, we can see the airport is floating on the sea. I'm amazed with their sophisticated and advanced technology honestly.

My first gel nail. High-gloss and candy-colored made them look so yummilicious. It's super long-lasting because I observed zero chipping for weeks!

Went through the Japan Immigration with nude make up. Looked super pale at 9am ......

First stop of my day 1 -- OSAKA CASTLE

This is the park outside Osaka Castle. This park is a very famous sakura viewing spot in Osaka in spring.

Super sunny and we love sunshine so much in this autumn!

Another old ginkgo tree. How good if we could sit on the bench, have some snacks and enjoy the scenery under this beautiful ginkgo tree?

And finally, Osaka Castle.


PB211364b
According to my tourguide, Osaka Castle was originally built by Hideyoshi Toyotomi, a shogun in Japan. I forgot the history of this landmark. Please google if you are interested ^^


DSC01491b
Superb view at the park



Second stop -- SHINSAIBASHI SHOPPING DISTRICT


This is the main shopping area in Osaka and even weekdays, you can see huge crowd after school hours and office hours.

The food street nearby Shinsaibanshi shopping district


PB211424b
Super cute omg!

Sushi shop

What to eat in Osaka? If you ask this question, I believe all will recommend TAKOYAKI


PB211462b
A famous Takoyaki shop for locals


PB211465b
Super big balls with LARGE piece and FRESH octopus which you will not get in Malaysia


PB211473b
Having our first meal in Osaka in the restaurant's first floor that offers a street view

PB211467b
Since we can't understand Japanese words, we chose the best looking Takoyaki according to the fake food samples in the display cases. 500 yen for 6 huge takoyaki


PB211472b
Takoyaki covered by a lot of spring onions and a yummy-looking egg. This takoyaki is totally different with the one we have in Malaysia. Why? No sauce and bonito flakes were added and thus made the taste a bit plain T_T

I was wondering why no sauce for our order and started to look at the shop's menu from first floor. Then I only found out that we ordered something special because the original takoyaki (comes with sauce and bonito flakes) costs only  400 yen. We did not order the original one simply because it wasn't shown as food sample in the display case and no english on their menu  (-_-)


Tour guide recommended this ramen shop to us. Since we were super hungry, we didn't even spend much time to think and straight went to the shop and purchased the food coupon. We were convinced because the shop was full with customers with no empty seats when we first passed by.

PB211483b
600 yen ramen. Love the rich pork bone soup. This bowl of noodles warmed me up in this cold weather

PB211482b
Itadakimasu!

PB211493b
After lunch, we walked towards Shinsaibashi shopping district 

PB211457b


PB211504b
Winter clothing. Even more expensive than Zara and MNG. 

The cheapest shop in this area is H&M! They were having 50% sales for certain items and winter dawn jacket was only 2000 yen (about RM80)!!! Did not buy it because the jacket was about 1kg and my luggage was already overweight when flying to Osaka. Regret for not buying because finally I managed to upsize my baggage online on the forth day in Japan.


STAY TUNED if you would like to see the heavenly beautiful autumn leaves in Kyoto. It's the highlight of my Japan trip.
