Its been a crazy few weeks travelling, things I loved, things I didn't like so much, meeting new people, discovering new things. All I can say though this trip has changed me a bit, I have new priorities, new ambitions and new inspirations. None-the-less, I'm sure glad to be home!
Be prepared for some serious Japan-esque posts as I have like a GAZILLION photos to share with you all. This first post is dedicated to the Hotel Kanra in Kyoto. A traditional but modern little Japanese boutique hotel we stayed at.
The design focuses on bringing the residence an experience to understand the city and culture and history of Kyoto through the design. Their rooms are equipped with some ultra modern but subtle lighting design. They use a lot of traditional materials like aromatic Japanese Cedar Wood and black slate and their room composition reflects that of a traditional Japanese house, full with tatami mats and paper doors.
It is a gorgeous little hotel and I would recommend anyone going to Kyoto to stay there for at least one night. They have some great facilities such as free to hire electronic bicycles which are the perfect transportation to get around and see and intimately experience Kyoto.
