Northern part of Hong Kong Island is so famous for its amazing double decker trams! They have been running since 1904 and they continue to be one of the best public transportation options for both tourists and locals. And the best part is that they are really cheap, only 2,3 HK dollars (0,3 euros)! Whenever in Hong KOng, take a ride with the tram, so that you can feel the real British influence and atmosphere in Hong Kong :)

Hikone Castle is a lovely castle from the Japanese Edo-period, one of the few castles in Japan considered a national treasure. It was built in 1622 and what is really amazing is that this is an original castle, which hasn't been affected or destroyed during its history. It is simply intact, exactly as it was in the past!

We've seen cherry blossoms for the first time in Japan in Kawagoe (30 mins away from Tokyo), on Shingashi River. It was such a spectacular view, so colorful and charming! And what's the best thing about this place is that it is not so crowded (even though it is a touristic town). But usually people prefer Tokyo, and you'll only see here locals or off the beaten track tourists - which is lovely :)

Walking the streets of Kyoto without having any destination in mind is probably the best thing you can do on a rainy day in Japan. Discovering off the beaten track sites, finding some unknown shrines, some peaceful places where you can enjoy the beauty of the ending sakura season (that explains the fallen cherry petals on the street :)

Sakura season is not amazing only during the full cherry blossom days. Oh no, no way! It is even more amazing when the cherry petals are falling from the trees, as if it's raining with petals. It was pouring rain when we visited Kyoto, but it was so beautiful to walk through the rain. The rain of petals :)

Gion is an exclusive well known geisha district in Japan and it's a must do/must see on any tourist's list in Kyoto :) But even though you're expecting to see geishas all around the streets, it is quite rare to see them. Actually, this one was the only authentic geisha that we have seen in Gion :) And trust us, she was lovely! Her makeup, her outfit, her hair, everything was perfect about her!

Kyoto is amazing, honestly. It has so much to offer, that you could spend weeks there and still miss some great spots to see. And the best thing to do around Kyoto is just to wander around the streets, see the temples, the parks, the Japanese gardens, eat the local foods, watch the people walking in front of you. Kyoto is all about being happy. And peaceful :)

Matcha tea ceremony is probably the most amazing experience we had in Japan. The preparation of the powdered green matcha tea, using the bamboo tea whisk to mix the tea and the hot water is not as easy as it seems. And you have to do it properly, as there are a set of rules which you must follow accordingly :) It is a complex rithual, which comprises the Japanese essence and culture. A totally must do when in Kyoto!

Probably the most beautiful Shinto shrine in Japan, Fushimi Inari is our favourite place to visit in Kyoto! It has thousands of torii gates (all donations) that go up on the mountain in a network of trails built in the forest behind the main temple. It is dedicated to Inari, the god of rice and there are lots of foxes all around this place, as these were Inari's messengers.

So many freely roaming deers in nara Park! They are considered to be the messengers of gods in Shinto religion and they are a real symbol of the city. They have even been designated as a naturale treasure! Just give them some deer crackers and they will be your best friends in Nara!
