Japan Day 10: Last Day In Kyoto

 My trip in Kyoto has come to an end and I'm terribly sad mostly because I am leaving my wonderful buddies from Ryukoku University behind. Seeing Hiroshima and Tokyo without them will not be the same, that's for sure.

Some Elle Japan Reading to start the day on top of my bunk bed! It came with a beautiful Sonia Rykiel make-up bag!
  I spent the morning visiting Gosho Palace, the old imperial palace of Kyoto which I will spare you pictures of. Truthfully I did not find the architecture that special in comparison to some of the other amazing places we visited!

I took the opportunity to spend my last free time in Kyoto downtown with my buddies at a beautiful dessert cafe upstairs overlooking Shijo, Kyoto's main shopping district area. I will most likely do another post on shopping in Kyoto and where the hot spots are for those of you interested!

My Buddies: Keiko and Natsumi
The Japanese love their matcha green tea on everything including desserts!
 We finished the evening with a Farewell party at the university which continued with the after-party at the seminar house where we where housed till later in the night!
