These photos are from my stroll in last month..... I miss that sunny and warm days already.
It's crazy cold every day. My body has gone frozen while just waiting for a bus for a minute. Coffee has gone cold in a few minutes. How can I survive till next Spring? It was raining today as well...... Actually I don't like winter so much and prefer summer. Hot coffee, knit, oranges, Christmas....... I like these things but ... but.....!! Wish I could live in a summer country like Singapore, Thailand...etc

These weeks are really nice to enjoy nature. All leaves has been turned to orange or yellow.
Walking around Kifune and Kurama area was so nice. Huge crowds were there though.
By the way, I watched The Wind Rises by Ghibli Studio. It describes how poor Japan was and how hard to live there before the second war.There is no hope in this story. Jiro and Naoko goes into unhappy. But their story is really beautiful and I couldn't stop crying:(

Still I cannot believe it's already November. Leaves are turning to red or yellow Kyoto city is filled with so many tourists!! They come here to see leaves and feel autumn. So pleasure many people enjoy Kyoto but we have many trouble with traffic. Buses don't arrive on the time. Big groups block a street.......etc haha
And all stores, cafes, and restaurants are crowded on weekends. I'm a little sad I can't stay long in my favorite cafes:(
Anyway I'm so lucky to live in Kyoto, except the traffic. This city has so many places to see.

We went to Asago city to see 雲海 which means sea of clouds literally. Takeda castle in Asago city is one of places where we can see sea clouds in Japan.
I woke up a.m. 3 because sea of clouds can be seen in the early morning. However, there was no clouds!!!! I knew it depends on weather....but....but....!!!! OK. It was just unlucky:<
３時に起きたのになー がんばって登ったのになー 天気によるからしゃーないねんけど…はあ
After that disappointment, we still had much time of course. Then heading to Himeji city to see Himeji castle which is said the most beautiful castle in Japan. HOWEVER it was under construction:< I tried hard to take a beautiful picture. I couldn't enter the main part of the castle.
After this second disappointment, we went back home........hahaha
