On The Road ~ Kyoto, Japan #18

Restaurant Le Plat Plus:

We headed out to a neighborhood restaurant, a French Restaurant recommended by the concierge of Kyo-Suiran where we were staying in Arashiyama, Japan. The food was excellent, the environment so French, we highly recommend if you are in the area.

On The Road ~ Kyoto, Japan #15

Where to stay in Kyoto:

On the Western side of Kyoto, set along the Hozu River, an authentic Japanese-style experience available at Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Kyoto. Beautiful walks surround the hotel. We walk about 7 hours our first day, from the Bamboo Forest then winding up the hills to Shrines, it was drizzly, so we did’t go further, but you can hike up the mountain to see the monkeys or in better weather ride up and down the river, so beautiful, I only wish we had seen it during Cherry Blossom time, we were about two weeks too early. Our plan was to spend two days here relaxing, then heading back to Kyoto town.
