The A-Z of Japan

So we have decided to go to Japan and the question "which part?" arises. of cos, kyoto is always one of my stopovers. i love kyoto. it's really beautiful ^^ some of my favourite photos were taken in kyoto my favourite hangout is asahido on kiyomizuzaka where they sell the famous kyoto kiyomizu pottery. damn expensive. one teacup can cost a few hundred SGD but see don't buy also feel damn shiok LOL and there got our favourite king crab restaurant ^^
