(Kyoto-8)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food tour

梅もそろそろ見納め、桜の咲き始める頃の京都へ🌸。弘法大師の開いた真言宗総本山「教王護国寺」(東寺)の国宝五重塔

Went to Kyoto in the season that plum flowers are ending and the cherry blossoms begin to bloom.  Enjoyed walking in "Kyouou Gokokuji (Toji temple "), the headquarter of Shingon Buddhism opened by Kobo Daishi (Kokai), and watching their Five-storied pagoda, a national treasure.

国宝金堂。東寺は京都駅からほど近いが、喧騒も無く荘厳な雰囲気の漂う名刹

National treasure, Kondo, main building.  Toji temple is very close to Kyoto Station but is quiet and has a magnificent atmosphere with no hustle and bustle.

京都はコロナウィルスの影響で観光客が極端に少なく、普段は中国人観光客などで混み合うホテルのロビーも今はガラガラ。初めて見る光景。

Kyoto has extremely few tourists today due to the coronavirus, and the hotel lobby, which is usually crowded with many Chinese tourists, is now rattling. The first sight to see.

しかし、意外にも、隣接するショッピングモール内のリカーショップ奥のバーカウンターでは、多くのお客がお酒を楽しんでいた。グッと我慢。

However, still many customers enjoyed drinking at the bar counter behind the liquor shop in the adjacent shopping mall.  It's almost time to have dinner at a favorite Japanese restaurant, so be patient.lo
