Inari is the god of commerce. Each one of the thousands doors that from its temple get you to the top of the mountain, was donated by the merchants and businesses of the city of Kyoto.
Cuando llegas está peor que la playa de Regla en hora punta, pero si subes lo suficiente hay pequeños momentos de paz y puedes hacerte una foto como si no hubiese nadie.
Importante traer: mochila (no hay papeleras y tienes que llevar todo contigo hasta que encuentras una a los pies del templo), algo de picar (solo hay máquinas de bebidas), dosis extra de paciencia (demasiada gente por todos los lados) y... anti mosquitos. A mi me tienen frita, me las veía muy felices porque normalmente no me suelen picar, pero en este viaje estoy sufriendo la furia japonesa de los mosquitos. Lo bueno es que las pulseras de repelente son muy cuquis con formas de animalitos y así se llevan de mejor gana 😊⛩

Dentro de unas semanas esto tiene que ser increíble todo teñido de rojo, ocre y amarillo 🍂
Ojalá un botón que te devuelta a los momentos y sitios bonitos. Para cuando tengas un mal día y necesites calma. Los viajes espaciales están muy bien, pero estaría mejor poder viajar al pasado.
Japanese streets are the perfect example of normal becoming extraordinary
When I was in Nara I went to this beautiful traditional Japanese garden "Isuien", sat there for an hour and did some thinking, about all the things I wish to learn.
~ I have to learn that not all people are bad, think about hurting others, and to give them the benefit of the doubt. ~ I have to learn to not be scared and to fight for what I believe in the most.
~ I have to be brave, not only for me but for everyone I love and care about too.
~ I have to learn how to love fearlessly and be loved back too.
~ I have to learn how to be patient and appreciate the small things, in order for them to become big. ~ I have to learn how to be less afraid of what life might hide, and have the faith and strength to tackle life obstacles I might face.
~ I have to learn how to accept my differences and feel grateful for my everyday blessings. ~ I have to overcome my fears of not becoming successful and feel content with whatever I'm pursuing at every stage of my life.
~ I have to stop feeling inferior and not worthy, and trust my abilities more.
~ I have to learn that not everyone gonna be friends with me, and that the world is not only limited to good, genuine people or people who share the same beliefs as me.
~ I have to learn how to be indulgent with myself, and accept my weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
~ I have to learn how to be ambitious for my own dreams and not to live up to other people's expectations.
~ I have to learn how to become that person I wished I looked up to when I was younger.
~ I have to learn how to always have the will to learn more about this adventure we call life and never give up on trying, even at my disastrous and sad failures.

The view from Kiyomizu Temple Circa November 2014
Some quotes from one of my favorite Japanese architects, Tadao Ando: "I like ruins because what remains is not the total design, but the clarity of thought, the naked structure, the spirit of the thing." "I do not believe architecture needs to too speak much. It should remain silent and let nature in the guise of sunlight and wind." #SecretlifeINTJ #Japan #kiyomizudera #kyoto #kyotojapan #igtravel #instatravel #igerskyoto #igersjapan
