#JKASIA17 Day 3: Instameet

Today, I woke up before my alarm went off. Checked the weather and realized that Kyoto will be raining the remaining week and I had about pretty much half of the day before the rain starts. I got my things ready and checked out two hours early. Went straight to Kyoto station, but something happened during my commute. I got into the train, in my carry on and backpack, so relieved that I caught it last minute. Then I realized there was so many females staring at me.. soon I found out that I'm actually in the "women's only" cart... so I apologized.. and hopped out and into the next one doing like a hundred 90 degree bows to all the ladies... so then, arrived at Kyoto station and locked up my carry on & backpack in the coin lockers inside the station then took the train to Inari. I was under the impression that it was gonna rain, so I wore my pleather pants and hiked up all the way to the top, in the sun.  

Yup, you can imagine how hot I was throughout the whole thing.. but I survived. I then went back to Kyoto station and met up with @TaroMoberly, then Taro and I went to Philosopher's walk where I met @Wataru51 and @RyanMamba. We went around all over the place and shoot random photos, talked about life. This was my official "insta meetup" and it's in Japan! Haha... we then went to a curry house where the sauce was so thick and unique, I can't even put in words! 

when the party split up, I met up with Kohei who was introduced by a friend named Kevin from Cali... and Kohei took me to his awesome traditional Kyoto house.. where I wouldn't stop admiring and freaking out about. I told Kohei's dad that the house looks like Doraemon's setup.. and he was laughing while smoking a cigarette inside the house.. 

yeah. At this point I am still freaking out about how awesome this place is, well, gonna need to take some photos later on! But here is a short 30 seconds video I made and photos I've taken :) enjoy y'all!
