My friend’s friend came over to Osaka

From 2009-05-09 Huizhi to Kyoto

*Yawns*, slept at 3 a.m yesterday and gotten to wake up 8 am in the morning so that we could go to Kyoto as my friend had to leave for Yokohama at 7 pm….. We took the train from Honmachi station to Nishi Umeda station (西梅田駅) and decided to have a light breakfast. Initially, we thought of eating Mos Burger, but the menus does not seems to be appealing and we went around searching for other shop until we sawed this one man cafe, or perhaps one woman ?

Special part of this shop is that seats are lined along the walls and it has a narrow walk path. Another thing was all the jobs, including receiving orders, making of the breakfast, washing was done by only one lady staff.

My breakfast set: Raisin Bread Toast, one hard boiled egg and a cup of coffee.

I don’t think we can find this kind of cafe in Singapore… It is really one man show or one woman show..

Once again I am in Kyoto

Normally, one would only visit a tourist spot once or twice, definitely not more than than because it is a waste of money and nothing changes much as well. In my case, I have been in Kyoto almost every 3 months, this time round was because my Singaporean friend came over to Osaka for a short trip (just 2 days), so I decided to bring her around the famous Kiyomizudera (清水寺).

Kiyomizudera (清水寺), also known as pure water temple is one of the most famous temple in Kyoto and part of UNESCO Heritage sites. The special feature of this temple is the wood structures that hold the whole area of the temple, without using a single nail !! Amazing ?

Apparently, everyone is trying to grab a chance to wash their hands and drink the holy water… The queue was too long that day, we gave it a pass. Anyway, I would give it a pass everytime I visit Kiyomizudera !

While we are on our way out of Kiyomizudera, we saw this group of cute “ducklings” with their yellow caps.
