Hello, my name is Boris, a foreigner living in Japan and specifically Kyoto for the past 7 years. Kyoto for me has just been the right balance between tradition and modernity, between nature and urban civilization. Discoveries in Kyoto are unlimited with lots of shrines and temples but also parks and gardens. The Kamo river that runs through Kyoto is one of my best spots where I relax after long days or go chill with friends on weekends. On an intense day, I will enjoy hiking up Kurama Shrine or Fushimi shrine but on a more calm day, I will prefer walking around Gosho Palace or the Shimogamo Shrine. The bars and restaurants in the Pontocho area give a beautiful atmosphere as you can enjoy the river view from the terrace.
