Pictures from Kyoto, Japan

Hey guys!

Here are some pictures I took when I visited Kyoto in Japan.

Kyoto is a famous, historic city with so many beautiful and interesting things for visitors to see. It has a population of 1.5 million people and was once the capital city of Japan.

I had a wonderful time in Kyoto, although it was very very hot! I was very tired every day because of the weather.
