Perhaps everyone who visits Kyoto goes to Kiyomizu Temple, because it is a World Heritage Site, because it is famous, because it is interesting, because it is beautiful, and of course because it is central and easily accessible. If you are lucky enough to be in Kyoto in springtime, here's another reason. It looks lovely clothed in cherry blossoms!

I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for one year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for nine years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014. I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
