Host Family Day in Kyoto

Day of activity: July 13th 2014

For the Host Family day, my Host family and I went to Kyoto. Our first destination was a movie studio, which was absolutely awesome! I went through the whole movie studio with my Host Father. We checked out literary every single house or attraction they had :D. One of the most interesting ones were Street and houses from Edo period, Samurai Event, and Ninja house :D. There were a lot of actors dressed up like samurai (I think I took a photo with most of them lol) and people wearing kimono and yukata or samurai and ninja costume. Ninja house was AWESOME! There are a lot of traps and ninja trickery :D. By the expression on the ninja’s face, I got impression that we bought a one way ticket haha… But somehow my host father and I maniged to find the way out LOL. He mistook me for an actress, thou haha. His English was broken but he gave his best to make our day. We had so much fun! If you ever visit Ninja House, Ganbatte with finding the way out haha…

After movie studio my host mother and I visited a lot of Temples and famouse tourist spots in Kyoto. I well in love with the city and I would definitely want to visit Kyoto again. One day in Kyoto is too short to visit all the places one would like to see. Next time, I would like to spend at least 5-7 days only in Kyoto, where one whole day I would use only for the movie studio and samurai or ninja make over LOL. I had so much fun! I am sad because I will have to leave Japan but I will give my best to come back.
