Boots: Nine West
The first night we arrived Kyoto for a Thanksgiving vacation, we went to our favorite Pontocho area in the center of Gion, a place mixes old and new, mystery and excitement. Only in Gion, elegant Geisha and punk teenager can co-exist so peacefully and naturally. Pontocho is an alley along the east side of Takase-gawa River features intimate family-run restaurants offer heavenly Kyoto cuisine for generations. Many restaurants don't have menu. Chef decides what to make based on what are in season, something I am especially attracted to. Mid November gets a bit chilly at night. The chunky Vince sweater keeps me warm without compromising the style. Tomorrow, my little family will explore some shrines around the area. I can't wait to see the red autumn leaves around the mountains Kyoto is so famous for. Cheers!
