Our start of travel in lovely Kyoto, Gion. ㄟ( ・ө・ )ㄏ
It was turning summer and the sun was hot but the cool air of Japan makes up for it.

There are lots of shrines in Kyoto and this is one of it in Higashiyama area, pity I didn’t catch its name. P.S: R took this photo with a selfie stick on DIY set up, isn’t it awesome hah!

A random route that caught our attention. We walked through and came across a fortune teller. She gave some pretty readings for R. Apparently, she asked for my birth date and congratulated R that he has found the woman of his life. Now, I wonder if that's really part of the reading but it made my day. (০▿০)

The package we took consist of 6 studio shoots for myself as Maiko, and 2 studio shoots for R as a Samurai. This is our 10 min of free time self photo taking. Random photography inside the parlour is disallowed. ^^

The kawaii staff that served us was discouraging me to putting on the glasses saying it may messed up my hairdo. We couldn't help it when she left thereafter, I hope this isn't disrespectful the Maiko culture, we just wanted to have fun photos for memory.

Our dinner that night. BBQ beef. Since I am hardly fond of meat and all, I enjoyed everything else from the lady fingers, murshroom and pumpkin more than the beef. ^^
