night sights

Lights at night were one of the first things I fell in love with in Japan. Walking around Hiroshima I was mesmerized by the dazling colors and displays that decorated the night’s skyline. Kyoto at night had the same effect on me. While shrines and temples dominate the sights during the day, the small streets take center stage at night. After temple chasing all day, we rested a bit  and took a stroll around the city at night.

Our hostel was in the Gion district, an area famous for geisha throughout history. (its the same neighborhood as memoirs of a geisha)

Streets that we had been walking on all day took on a whole new personality, and all I could do was take it in.
