Kawadoko is the ingenious custom of dining on platforms built over a river which provides natural air conditioning during the hot summer months. We experienced kawadoko in Kibune, a small town in a valley just north of central Kyoto in early July.
Japan is a country I have wanted to visit ever since…well since forever. Planning this trip was one of the most hastily organized excursions that I’ve had the pleasure of putting together, but it turned out to be a fantastic experience. For this exact reason I decided to write a complete travel guide to #Japan that includes a sample itinerary and many many tips. I hope to make it easy for you to customize and make perfect your First Trip To Japan!
