Fushimi Shrine

March 17th, 2010

I’m sorry I don’t have the strength for uploading pictures, my legs are shaking too hard…

Fushimi shrine is incredibly interesting and beautiful and has lots of shops where my wife threw money at the Japanese economy. We did not make it to the very top. My wife has a broken foot and we still managed about 2/3rds up the hill, so no shame here.

It slayed us.

So much so, that I have blown off social things for tonight and am now back in my room, enjoying the throbbing of every muscle in my body.

Really, even if I did show you the pictures I took, you’d be like – what the hell is wrong with you? I don’t take normal pictures.

We stopped by the Tezuka World gift shop with statues of characters right at the foot of our hotel. The wife got a picture of me and Safire from Ribon no Kishi. I’ll show you later.

Today’s random junk food report: Calbee Jagariko Carbonara flavor. Potato sticks that taste like bacon tomato sauce. Inexplicable, kinda good, also not good at all.

Tomorrow – well…I’ll tell you tomorrow. :-)

    I’ve read the last three blog posts and find myself giggling madly at the mental images. My wife and I do the same thing (speaking of flogging yourself to go view lovely shrines and whatnot and end up feeling like a wet noodle). You’d think we’d learn. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay :D

    Fushimi Inari Shrine is my fave!!! Totally floored by the hundreds of torii gates.

    Juz left Kyoto on the 16th March.

    Have fun!
