Since some other students of the I House were planning to go to the path of philosophy on that day, I thought it would not be a bad idea to accompagny them since I really wanted to go back there when the sakura would be in full bloom ! But before going there, I needed to buy something : a bike ! The day before, Corentin bought his in a small shop for only 5000¥. I asked him to tell me where he did so to buy mine. After some researches, I've been able to finally get it !
|Even if I'm leaving in less than 4 months, I think it will be easy to sell it before leaving since I got it brand new for really cheap !|
Then, since we had some time before the rendez-vous with the others, we went to a student restaurant for lunch. There, I ate the biggest meal in my life :
|THE MEGA KATSUDON-student version- (now I understand why Aki and Jo only bought one to share it !)|
After that, we went to the Kamigamo shrine and met the others around 1pm. Since some of them were not with us yesterday, I visited it again with them quickly !
|Hi cheeese ~|
Then we left and rode with our bikes along the Kamogawa river, also like the day before !
|We could see the Daimonji-yama from there ! Every summer, during the Daimonji festival, this kanji is set on fire ! Unfortunately, I'll be back to France before seeing this amazing event :(|
As soon as we arrived at the path of philophy, I directly noticed how better it was this time ! The sakura looked like big pink clouds with all their flowers ! The most surprising event of that day was to see all the petals flowing with the wind, and above all... this :
|The water canal was, at some places, full of sakura petals ! it was outstanding !|
Here is a little video I shot with my camera. Sorry, YouTube killed the quality...
Once we finished walking along the path of philosophy, and after we finished eating our ice creams (I got a sakura ice cream, it was delicious haha), we headed towards a place I had never been to : Nanzenji Temple. As always since I arrived in Kyoto, I also loved this place a lot.
I really enjoyed this day too ! Unfortunately, it was already the end of the week end...
