If you would like to see traditional Japanese houses and stunning temples, you should visit Kyoto. You can see Geishas walking around with their traditional costumes and if you’re lucky you may be able to capture a photo of them.
Golden hour in Kyoto, in front of the famous Yasaka Pagodo. This picturesque Buddhist temple was so magical to see during sunset, especially with all the girls dressed up in their colorful Geisha outfits!
