From Kameoka I took the Hozugawa River Boat to Arashiyama! The ride finished right near the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove.

The bamboo forest in Arashiyama was so beautiful.

Some pictures of the ryokan I stayed at in the Gion area of Kyoto. Very fancy!

The Yasaka Shrine! Didn't spend to much time here as I wanted to explore a little bit before dinner.

Kaiseki Meal 1

Kaiseki Meal 2

First of two kaiseki meals I had at the ryokan. Incredible meal! After stuffing my face I returned to my room to watch sumo on TV. Was pretty tired at this point of the trip due to lack of sleep.

The scenery for this day was incredible. I loved walking around the Gion area of Kyoto.

This is my day 30 post for #100daystooffload
