We spent the last two days in Japan in Kyoto. After riding Japan’s high speed bullet train, we made our way to the Airbnb, which was located right next the incredible Fushimi Inari-taisha. This shrine contains a path of thousands of vibrant orange torii gates and hundreds of stone foxes. What a feast for the eyes!!
Our next stop was Iwatayama Monkey Park, and let’s just talk about that hike. It took us almost an hour to walk up the mountain (with numerous rest stops), but it was totally worth it! The view was breathtaking. But the best part was the wild monkeys. That’s right… MONKEYS! They would just walk right by us, and sit next to us while we enjoyed the view. We were even able to feed them (apples and peanuts) in a hut with wire fence covering the windows. Having a baby monkey grab an slice of apple out of the palm of your hands was awesome!!
Japan was incredible. The memories we made were priceless. There are not enough words to describe our experience. All we can say is that we will absolutely be back. Thank you for everything Japan!!
