Kyoto, Japan – Day 5(c)

Watching the sunset from Kiyomizudera.

The last rays of the day.

When I was watching the sunset, my brother in law told me the best photos from the sunset is not the ones we try the capture when the sun was setting. The colors from the last few minutes when the sun set would be the best as the colors were in huge contrast before dusk descends.

I think this was what he meant! (Of course, this photos was captured by him)

After the sun set, we took off from the Kiyomizudera temple and slowly made our way down the slope to catch the bus back to the city. The temple usually closes at 6pm but during times of the Cherry blossom and Autumn leaves peak times, there is a night illumination and the temple is opened till 9pm.

Dinner was the famous Kyushu ramen place called Ichiran (一蘭). You purchase your meal ticket and indicate your desired toppings, check on the available seats

Everyone sits in their own booths, this is to let you savor the noodles with no distractions from others and they place the noodles through the counter and close the opening. Then you start slurping your delicious noodles!
