Kyoto Meanderings. No.4


If you know me at all, you’ll be well aware of my intense dislike for hot, humid summers. Kyoto has provided the most intense of them I’ve experienced in my life. And I’m an Australian.

In previous posts I have vented my dismay, in colourful detail, about the sweltering conditions in Kyoto’s bonchi (basin) so it really is about time I say something positive…

In the meandering series my desire is only to give you a visual feel for Kyoto at different times of the year.  Sure the heat is unbearable for me but even I can admit there are some wonderful summer experiences to be had in Japan’s cultural centre.  You can read about the famous Gion Matsuri HERE and Obon and Daimonji HERE but for your viewing pleasure… take a look below.
