Japan Trip day 05 (Kyoto, Fushimi Inari, Kiyomizu Temple, Osaka)

Hello again!!!
We are on day 05 today
it was on April 4th

So anyway, i haven't told you guys on the previous post about the hotel that i checked in Hamamatsu
According to my tour guide, this hotel is the best one among the hotel list on my japan tour
The hotel name is Okura Act City
yeah the lobby was really big, but in my opinion, the breakfast was not that good

view from the room
Anyway based on my experience in this trip
The unique thing i got from staying at Japan hotels is that they really provide super complete toiletries
Im not really sure if u stay in budget hotel
But, since i went with a tour (Golden Rama), i was staying in mostly 4-5 stars hotel
Even in few hotels, they provide soap, shampoo, conditioner from Shiseido
As some of you may know that Shiseido is originally from Japan
The scent was really good, not too strong
Such a good way to promote the brand as well since actually i haven't used any Shiseido product before, but i love it now!

Yes, so from Hamamatsu we continue the trip to Kyoto

Our first stop on this day was Fushimi Inari

Its one of the famous places to go as well when you go to Kyoto, Japan
There's a lot f couple took a prewed photo as well in here 

On my way back to bus again, there was a lot of food stand alongside the road

Looks so GOOD

green tea tofu soft serve :P

After finished walking around, we then continue our trip again
but because its already lunch time, we should stop by to have some lunch

here are some photos on our way to the restaurant


found these cuties wearing yukata

you will see a lot of flower pot next to pedestrian way
Our second stop was Kiyomizu Temple
it is not too far from the restaurant though
However, since the earlier of the trip, me and Yuliana have been excited to wear Kimono
we decided to go to Kimono rental around Kiyomizu Temple
since i've been googling it before about the price, t&c
So as soon as our bus parked nearby Kiyomizu temple
we rushed to the Kimono rental place

still have time to take photo bcs it just too beautiful!!!

I don't remember the rental name though
but when you are in Kiyomizu Temple area,
I'm sure there will be a LOT
you can go to any rental place anyway

Here i list some info about the rental place that i went to:
There are 2 prices, the simple one and more expensive one
When you rental the kimono here, you will be rented a kimono including obi, bag, and sandal 
You can choose any colour you want but within the collection
But its not include the hairstyle and makeup
In this place they only provide hairstyle though, it will cost 1500 yen

So, for the simple collection you have to pay around 4900 yen (include hairstyle), and for the other collection is around 5900 yen (include hairstyle)

At first time i didn't realise that there are 2 collections
so it turned out i choose the expensive one :(
but since i've worn it, and it really took like 30 mins to just wearing the kimono, i ended up paying the expensive one
Yes it will took you a long time to wear the kimono, but DONT BE PANIC, there will be lot of assistants will helping you wear it

and for the photo?
Don't worry, just walk by and you will find a lot of spot or places to take photo at
But, make sure you got someone to take your photo :D

ahhhh i miss japan a lot while writing this blog
the air, the food, the place
everything was really amazing!

Time to go back to our Hotel
But before we got some dinner first

was good and convenient 

sooo, see you on my last blog about Trip in Japan later
