Chasing after Kyoto
Call me old fashioned but Ive always found old cities to be beautiful and mysterious, more importantly I can’t help but have a deep appreciation and admiration for them because undeniably it is extremely difficult to stay relevant and genuine as time hastily sets up shop and transports us into another era.
Kyoto I must say is one of those cities that have seamlessly and elegantly fused old world charm and modern adaptations. Though seemingly meek and modest this city has made me traverse endless routes, uphill hikes, and had its fair share of beautiful surprises.
From scenic routes, odd tasting seasonal treats, and surprise Geisha and Maiko appearances by quiet alleys along with tourists frantically chasing after them. Kyoto depicts the modern day tale of the new going after the old.
Surrounded by endless temples that sometimes incur a fee or rely on donations, Kyoto is perhaps Northern Asia’s take on a temple run for its Southeast counterpart.
Kyoto perhaps has become a solace for anyone seeking to make out wishes, engaging in beautiful, silent, and relevant pauses and pursuing endless yet promising paths.
