🍜 If you think delicious noodles have to be hot... I dare you to maintain that belief while eating the cold soba noodles with dipping sauce at Manjirō in Kyoto! . The noodles (which come on a bed of ice) are chilled to perfection - you grab a few strands in your chopsticks, dip them in the dashi-based sauce and send your mouth to cool, umami heaven. They are so refreshingly light - perfect for the summer months! 🥢♥️// #AlanaInKyoto #PPWorldFlavors @PassionPassport . 🤔 What’s your favorite Japanese noodle dish?! ____________ 📍 Manjirō, Kyoto, Japan

Silence is something you can actually hear. But when you speak, speak up with your style. Suit: @prestigetailor #theomonowithstyle #wheninJapan #tmtraveldiary #wheninkyoto

Did you know that Kyoto’s Arashiyama area was developed by the Japanese imperial family as a retreat for royals and court nobles?! This tranquil green-scape and mountain serenity lured them here and kept them coming back year after year. As I walked along the river, I imagined that a stroll through these scenic surroundings would make any emperor forget about his emperor-ly duties (at least for a little while). ⛰🌿 // #FunFactFriday #AlanaInKyoto . 🤔 Do you have a favorite nature escape in Japan?! ________________ 📍Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan

Jinrikisha. It's a Japanese rickshaw. Try it when you're in Japan like in Kyoto. It's a service that helps you discover the hidden tourist spots. Most of them speak English and can help you with where to go and what to eat. Try this leisurely journey and enjoy the experience when you're in Japan. . . . . #aroundtheworldpix #ig_masterpiece #campinassp #flashesofdelight #travelog #mytinyatlas #HypeBeast #vscoportrait #ig_mood #discoverportrait #portraitphotography #wheninjapan #bleachmyfilm #postmoreportraits #portraitpage #instagramjapan #japanfocus #japantrip #cooljapan #igersjapan #fujifilm #fujifilm_xseries #fuji #fujifeed #wheninkyoto #kyotojapan

Strutting through a Japanese temple ⛩🚶🏻‍♂️and right into #TravelHackIt Thursday ⇢ the day when I share my favorite travel hacks, tips and tricks to help you travel smarter! • Today we’re chatting about using less plastic while traveling in Japan! Japan is an amazing country but their plastic use blows my mind. 🤯 There is such an emphasis on presentation when you’re buying / ordering something and with that culture comes a heavy reliance on plastics. So many grocery items are individually-wrapped in plastic (and then put in plastic bags!) . Here are 3️⃣ simple ways that you can reduce your plastic use while traveling Japan: ▪️Carry a reusable water bottle - this has become a mainstay of my travels everywhere but was especially easy in Japan where there were plenty of places to refill! Here’s my man modeling our reusable bottle as he explores Kyoto ♥️ ▪️Bring along a canvas tote bag - it’s easy to pack with you and use whenever you’re shopping to avoid accumulating tons of plastic bags! 🛍 ▪️When you’re buying souvenirs, ask store employees to skip the intricate wrapping - if you want to present your finds in a traditional way, you can buy and wrap souvenirs in Japanese fabric (which is reusable and beautiful!) 😍 . 🤔 How do you minimize plastic use when traveling?! • • • 💡Btw, use the #TravelHackIt hashtag in posts and Stories so I can see and share YOUR travel hacks and tips! __________ 📍Kyoto, Japan

🎋♥️🎋 Did you even go to Kyoto if you didn’t take a side trip to the most iconic bamboo forest in the world?! Yes, this beauty should be on everyone’s bucketlist, but you’d be surprised to know that it’s not as vast as it seems from the shots you see on IG. In fact, it only took a few minutes to walk through it! . To make the most of your (short) time here, I recommend coming as close to sunrise as possible to avoid the crowds. Without the push of other travelers trying to get their shots here, you can slowly meander through this lovely pathway, letting your gaze follow the bamboo stalks up and up and up! 🙄😮 . Then, since you got here early, you’ll have plenty of time to explore Arashiyama town, lesser-known temples and gardens, and monkey park! // #AlanaInKyoto #WanderlustWednesday . 🤔 Have you been here? Were you as surprise as I was by how small this area truly is?! ____________ 📍Bamboo Forest, Kyoto, Japan

The streets of #kyoto were so interesting during the night, all of the noise stopped after 10 PM. This is one of the more interesting side streets I've seen there. #wheninkyoto #kyotojapan #kyotophoto
