Unfortunately, after Nara, Jonathan’s brother and his family had to head back to the states, but we stayed longer and headed to Kyoto to enjoy more of the spring sakura blooms. We spent three days visiting many of the typical highlights of Kyoto and a lot of time just eating!

Many of the temple and park areas have lighting of the cherry blossom trees at night time as well, which is a fun experience. In one of the main parks, there were also food stalls throughout the day and evening.
