This is the third part of my trip to Japan in summer 2014. You can read the posts about the preparation, the first day, and the second day.

Sorry for the late post for whoever cares. At last, I have found time to write on my blog. In fact, now I have a lot time… Continue reading Day 2: Kyoto Nirvana
