Seville 1

Published By Sylvie and Gérard

We try to put ourselves in the rhythm sevillan.

In the rise towards 11 o'clock in the noon a coffee with milk with a sandwich of bread, a dash of olive oil and the tomato crushed on the top.

At three o'clock of him after noon a young encas with tapas with a beer, the sparkling water is tolerated, then some drinks to quench thirst, the temperature requires him. In the evening, after the apéritif especially some beer, taken up with the friends you can eat something at about the 22 hours. It is difficult to find a table of free, and nevertheless bars are more numerous that churches. We live near the place in Hercule which is covered with bars and with tables and with chairs and it is not enough. The evening is not ended, it only begins, on Friday evening and Saturdays evenings, songs, shouts, discussed livened up until 4 hours. For Sunday evening we wait for the hostilities, at the moment 22 hours, the district seems more quiet.

For tapas, drink and meal we are in the point, for the breakfast we think.

We roamed in the old town, many streets are pietonnaires and in every crossroads or small place, some tables and chairs indicate a tapas bar, no problem to quench thirst.

There are also some monuments, palaces and churches which we visit at random of a street or by means of the plan and the guides.

Here is we have just taken our first flight Ryanair. He does not make party of 2000 flights cancelled for lack of pilots. We travelled low-cost, no sandwich, no drinks, only the supplement to choose our places and be together.

We almost leave on time and almost arrive on time (1/4 h). The taxi brings us in city center to the apartment for 28 euros.

Recording and discovery of the apartment, then we leave for discovery of the close district.

Osaka last day

Published By Sylvie and Gérard

I draft this article of the airport, since the hotel Nikko, the next one on Japan will feel well for the blooming of cherry trees in the worst never.

To close the program, this morning we left our bags in instruction to the hotel Lutheran. Today he makes stormy, the temperature is hot, the wet air, we wet the shirt especially with the small backpacks. We visit the Shitennoji temple, it is our last one, a betrothed, He is 1400 years old the ancestor. The complex includes a crowd of buildings and small hotels. Every building seems to have a different function. Here the water springs from mouth of a tortoise, a filled officiating priest its jar of small plates given by the penitent, then puts him under the water jet going out of the tortoise and lets float plates in the fountain, then he takes the plates of the following one and it continues. Farther tortoises bronze in the sun or are going to cool in the puddle. In one other place, it is necessary to shake a picket connected with string with the stick of the bronze pilgrim, to ring rings, to make turn a stone wheel black and in every case make a small prayer. A little farther, they give themselves knocks of wooden mallet at the bottom of the back, on knees, on head, having turned the mallet on a block of wood, certainly having cured their pains.

The main building is in renovation, at his age it needs a small face-lift. The pagoda in 5 floors invites us to rise, with the ambient heat, we resist and stay below.

We join then, Keitakuen garden only on the way is the Isshinji temple, there are crowds of people, guards make the traffic, we try to make the outsides, the visibility is reduced, we are invaded by the smoke of incense. We cross in apnea and find the way back of the garden. A row of hydrangeas welcomes us, then we make the tour of the pond, it is of the most beautiful effect, it is not the most beautiful that we saw, but he is ordered well. If we had begun with that there we would have found him extraordinary, we become used to the beautiful and become requiring. In an abandoned house of tea, a painter makes watercolors.

We return in the hotel to get back our luggage, along the way we stop us to take a snatch, we order a dish of language and we have of the language. It is necessary it's a pity to bring in, just at the moment or we manage be served that we command, and master the grip of tickets by bus, by train or in subway. We even helped a foreigner to take its tickets in the vending machine in the subway. I was one can amazed that Japanese asks for help me by speaking English, in fact he was from Hong-Kong.

A tour of bus and here we are at the airport, it feels the end of the holidays, from now on it is necessary to think of organizing the next ones, but for or? We are certainly going to have credit note of the ideas in the next few weeks.

Osaka the castle

Published By Sylvie and Gérard

The castle is next to the hotel, it is impossible not to visit him. We begin with the tour of ramparts to warm up. The castle is surrounded with flowerbeds stocked with hydrangeas, they are very different from each other, going of blue in fuchsia via various tints of pink. There are simple ones, copies, with girls flowers inside, there are also deep one, thirsty ones but not of faded, the gardeners stay up.

We return and as little old men that we are, take the elevator up to the 6th floor, we are accompanied as the handicapped persons. Sylvie having asked if we could use the elevator in the box, we had a favorable answer and a person accompanies us, on the first floor. We change guide and are entitled to the special line in passing in front of everybody, we are guided too satisfied with the chance of a lifetime. After the tour of the belvedere and the photos of use, we come down again by the staircase as everyone. It is forbidden to make photos inside, walls are papered with frescoes showing the various battles of samurais and master of the castle of the time.

We return to Dotonbori, and eat on the spot in a pizzeria to resume the European rhythm, 2 pizzas and 2 salads. We spot some stores among which Bershka, Zara, Desigual ... in a covered gallery, no problem girl you do not go to be disoriented, we did not look if the prices were interesting. Return in subway, we begin to get tired.

Osaka

Published By Sylvie and Gérard

Before leaving Kyoto, we photograph our apartment. Then with a tour of bus, train and subway, here we are on returning to Osaka, Lutheran hotel next to the castle. He not our rest that two days. It is on Sunday, streets are deserted, the closed stores. We are going to visit the museum of ceramic. He is on an island in the middle of the river. A temporary exhibition on chinas of Budapest of the factory Herend, shows us a whole series of plates, vases, tea sets or in coffee. Potteries are finely decorated or chiselled. The permanent exhibition shows us vases of almost all the Chinese dynasties, of the most known as Ming and others were less known at least by us.

By walking us in streets, we pass in front of one of the only open stores. We bring in, it is a specialized store in the party of the children. Fishes of any sizes are exposed to the ceiling, on the shelves of the small dolls dressed in samurai smile to us. Farther hotels where throne an imperial couple surrounded with courtiers and with offerings. Strap dolls are luxurious, the price also. Historically, the party of boy May 5th had a military value because in samurai's families, boy saw putting back this day the elements of armor. That is why nowadays, in the houses where is one boy, a doll in armor is exposed instead of honor. For girl it is March 3rd, we offer dolls and the imperial couple always has to be at the top of the display stand.

Kiyomizudera temple, Kadaji temple and Entoku - In temple

Published By Sylvie and Gérard

We go back in front of Yasaka Pagode who is to be on our way. The small alleys are lined with workshops, the tourists stream, the weekend begins. As we are in the 5th week, Sylvie insists so that I spend my money to make him presents. She rises slowly, passing from shop to shop. We arrive at the temple and there surprised, the main monument of Kiyomizudera is in renovation (it was not written in guides), it is going to be worth taking out the photos of archives of 2008. We make our tour, in the middle of the fellows just like that. We watch the students taking the water in the bowl by tightening the arm, you will have of the success in the examinations by drinking the meditative water in this way. There should be many examinations to be crossed because the line is long!

We make the tour of the park and come down again having reached the peak of the day with a view of Kyoto. Small matcha break and ice by leaving Kiyomizudera.

We go then to Kodaji temple, in the perimeter. We leave shoes and make the tour of gardens, today no philosophy nor of bucolisme, we meditate sat in front of dry or wet gardens.

He are always maintained well, not leaf on the small pebbles or sand. The foam is absent in any herbs parasites, in brief everything is first-class. The visit is also arrowed in a strict way, we should not cross, a lady directs us in every crossing so that we took the right direction, no way to break the route. We end with the crossing of small forest of huge bamboo.

We dip back into the crowd, make a tour in some stores and visit the exhibition of glass objects in the temple Entoku - In.

We return in the apartment by handing on by the temple to the tunnel in the wishes. A line of about fifty people waits to sneak in the hole!

We put down purchases and go to the station to the restaurant. By going up to the 11th floor staircases are illuminated with small lamps multicolored for the 20th anniversary of the station. The lighting makes an animation with characters of childish BD.

The way of the philosophy, Gion and Shinbashi

Published By Sylvie and Gérard

Today we leave for the philosophic day, his temples, his gardens. We take buses 206 and 18 and we innovate by taking a day pass for 500 yens, in the third bus it is already of the profit.

We begin the way of the philosophy with the temple of silver called also Ginkakuji Temple and his magnificent gardens. We arrive at the same time as groups of school, mass with about fifty small kids and 4 accompanying persons or in small community 5 adolescent pupils with a guide.

It is the good hour, and there are very few other tourists. In front of the temple of silver and its pond, the photo is compulsory for the school, the five by five, very organized the photo takes a few seconds by group and to the following one.

We admire the dry gardens with sand and rocks, the small stream in forest stepped by small bridges of stone.

We leave for some hundred meters, the way goes along the river and we stop in Hônen - In, small temple which does not visit with its quite small garden in forest. Then it is Eikando with its big buildings and his pagoda, its garden with its ponds in water lilies surrounded with green maples and red. Then we arrive at Nanzen-ji. The way is the electrical wire between all the temples of the district, us strappons some of lesser importance according to our philosophic day analysis.

Of temple in temple, gardens in small gardens, we arrive up to the nearby aqueduct of the Nanzen-ji and its garden. After this overdose of temple and garden, we find this garden there ordinary, dulled by so much beauty.

By following the channel, we resume 206 up to the apartment. We abandon our purchases which became cumbersome and after a small pose decorated with a salad of tomatoes, with startups of seeds no identified and of small mushrooms of origin that we bought from the great nearby market, we leave in Gion's small alleys, then Shinbashi.

We pass by the street Ponto Chô, lined with restaurants in all kinds. I has for all the prices it of it, some seem rather smart, the menus being posted between 10 000 and 15 000 yens, we cross our way. The culinary experiences up to 3500 yens, OK, but then it seems to us a little risked, because we are never sure of the contents of the plate.

We continue then along the river, numerous people as stroll us along the bank or sat or lengthened révassant by looking at duck and at herons.

We cross again the river and are going to lose us in the alleys of Shinbashi. We recognize a shop window of restoring that we had spotted ten years ago, a dog holds by the pair of shorts a customer and since the pair of shorts did not fall head over heals, the Japanese quality yet!

We bring in and command two crêpes, we choose one in the beef and other in the fish, the lady with strength mimes makes us understand that there is not a choice, all ingredients are in the crêpe, then we command that there, there is only a model. It is a little bit different from some Breton pancake, but the principle is the same, the pancake stocked with some elements.

We bring in via one other just temple in front of the apartment, our capacity templesque still not being for saturation. Sylvie sneaks in the hole of a small hillock stocked with wishes hoping that his is made, I shall not reveal him to you because the ignoramus and being secret.

Inara Fushimi

Published By Sylvie and Gérard

By taking buses 206 up to the station, then 105 up to Inara, we arrive at the foot of the temple Fushimi. We pay 230 yens each, it is the single price of the local buses in Kyoto. Attention before arriving at the temple, two passages at levels to cross with trains stops, both stations are situated unless 100 meters one of other, they are not the same companies, in each his.

The rents of kimonos walk completely, it is here that we see most people in traditional attire. We arrive at the temple, the vermilion color. Then we put on us under toris, they are very very tight, they contact all, the walk begins, right turn, left turn, there they are higher, there they are bigger, that rises, that comes down again a little, that goes back up. There are thousands on 5km. Impressive, we make our tour and come down again by the outsides as expected, on the plan. We do not pass anymore under toris, that misses us a little, we accommodate hotels of good prayer on medal recipients of youngs toris and of foxes. The fox is the symbolic animal of the place, carry word of the divinity Inari which protects the harvests of rices. It was our day everything in vermilion!

Return in the temple, then in the bus 105 and 206 to return to Gion. We make the tour of the district close to our apartment via the pagoda and the pedestrian streets and the storekeepers which surrounds him. We meet a young couple of bridegroom making photos. The sun lies down, it's time to return.

Osaka and Kyoto

Published By Sylvie and Gérard

We leave Osaka for Kyoto. We leave the hotel with our bags and suitcases at 10 am, in the direction of the Station Umeda. We put our luggage in a left-luggage lockers, 700 yens for the suitcase and 500 yens for the bag, there are 3 different sizes. We are going to take to the distributor our tickets for Kyoto, 560 yens a person. That costs cheaper to travel with its luggage that to leave them in an instruction. Free of our movements we go off to explore the station, we go up by escalators until 10 ème floor and we finish by walking until the 13th to succeed in Farm Garden. In the staircases of flowers are installed on walls, then we arrive in a kitchen garden, the gardeners bustle on flowerbeds, some to remove one by one flowers faded, others to water or hoe. A kitchen garden confides in us, it consists of small squares of different plants. We discover zucchinis, pepper, pumpkins, shiso, mint, basilica, corn, wheat, and other varieties, quite surrounded of hydrangeas.

It's midday we get down again to take the train, the representative "to Live Japan" waits for us at 3 pm to Kyoto, to put back us the keys of the apartment which we rented for 5 days in the center of Gion.

Later 35mn of express, we arrive at the immense station of Kyoto. We find difficulties the bus station and by following the instructions messengers "to Live Japan" let us take the bus 206. We find the apartment by following the instructions, with no problem at all. It is 2 pm we are an hour early, we decide to take an encas in the coffee situated just below the apartment to wait. Our correspondent is there too having lunch. We take two beers and a sandwich and then rise to the apartment. Clément presents us the subtleties of the apartment and the functioning of the diverse devices, the washing machine, the cooker of rice, light, opening of windows, where are the dishes, shower. He also gives us a rundown on what we can see in 5 days and the situation of the various sites on a card, good restaurants in the surroundings with their speciality, shows us personally where is Lawson, 7 Eleven, Familymart and the great market. We never arrived in a city with so much of information at so not much time. There is so, as we noted nothing, we forget immediately half, we have the indications that he registered on the card.

The installation was finished, we leave making a tour of district, We find easily our first temple, Yasaka shrine, it is easy there is, on every street corner.

In Gion, we meet many ladies and girls in kimono. There are stores of rent, you can rent a traditional attire with kimono and wooden flip-flops for 3000 yens. The tourists find a way at once, they do not feel at ease to walk with flip-flops in spite of socks with the separate thumb. In the temple, by photographing three Japanese tourists in kimono I perceives me that one of her too films me, her if approach asks me where from I come. Them, them are Korean.

We return via the high-octane gasoline market to take some sparkling water and punnets of pineapple. In them restoring they do not serve fruits as dessert and it misses us a little. Fruits in Japan are dear, a big apple 250 yens, a pineapple 1000 yens, a melon also.

After a repair night, we take the bus 17 for Ohara a small village in the North of Kyoto. We have a little of evil to find the bus stop. There are in fact two buses 17, one green and one brown, brown is marked Ohara but does not stop in the same place as green, we see him passing, it is now enough to know where we be going to be able to rise. After several information given in Japanese, we manage to find the good stop. He is planned a "bucolic" day, in gardens and fields in the campaign.

The specialities of the village they are pickles, we taste a few every without always to identify of what they consist. We find several fields of shizo, he grows here better than at Céline, he has to be at their home, or the climate is better adapted.

We go up a way lined with shops of pickles, it is not the choice which is lacking. We go up to the temple Sanzen in, then stroll in the gardens which adjoin him. Big one butterfly black, defies us. He gathers azaleas during flight, he never settles, difficult for the photo. Small one court of water serpente between paths, foam is omnipresent nevertheless hydrangeas suffer from the heat or from the drought, flowers hangs, arbor do not have the strength to support them. Small stone characters hide in the foam, two frogs cause a big stir in their puddle. At the very top a row of shelves where rest thousands of warriors' small figurines, a little more than 17000, I considered them 47 times 375 statuettes, in more they is numbered. Close by one other temple Shorin in, more than millennium surrounded with its foam garden and with its puddle in frogs. In an angle a bell, obviously it is attractive, I ring her ... and am muttered! Adjoining the temple, we find a garden with ceremony of the tea. Fortunately there were small stools, I was able to taste the matcha calmly in front of the garden and in front of its seven-hundred-year-old pine. It is the bucolic day!

We return to the bus station. We stop along the way taking a small meal, we opt for two dishes of soba cold (dough), Sylvie takes famous tororo soba and I kinoko mozore soba. After this tasting, even if certain elements not been able to be identified, it was very good. We tried to understand with what was made Tororo the slightly sticky foam appearance of which was unknown us. We questioned the cook who spoke only Japanese and who answered us of an obvious tone by Tororo when we showed him the plate. Two shops farther, we command each an ice, we choose vanilla half, half shizo red. We have a vanilla, and a shizo. We progress in Japanese but there is progress to be made. We go to temple following one le Jakko in. The way leading to it crosses fields, the cultures surround houses, fields of rice in overhang, the innondation is assured if the small dike gives in.

The temple is anything, but the way which leads to it is beautiful, it serpente between the cultures among which several fields of shizo. It grows very well here.

Return, by bus until Gion, we return to the apartment via small alleys, following a small river very shaded and lined with restaurants both quoted. We meet along the way two apprentices geisha girls. We return having bought some water and fruits. Just in front of the supermarket in a small alley, a sleeping well exposed to the sun pagoda: the photo is compulsory. Phew the bucolic day is finished, a good shower and a little of rest.
