Our Japanese Honeymoon: Part 2

Gosh! Writing this honeymoon posts has proven difficult. So many photos I want to share with you, so choosing just a few is giving me a headache. Originally I wanted to write  only two posts about it, but I think I’ll need… four!! Hope you don’t mind!

KYOTO

Kyoto is lovely. It was Mr. WV favorite place. Kyoto has a special charm, full of traditional and cultural places, tiny streets and delicious food.  It used to be the capital of Japan and has many temples and Buddhist Gardens.
