We found this temple on our way from Rengeoin Sanjusangendo as we were walking to the Kiyomizu-dera Temple. There were several others along the way, such as the Ontani Mausoleum, the Yōgenin Temple, and far too many others to count. The Toyokuni Shrine is located up a tall set of stairs, and nearly invisible from the street. We were intrigued because of...
Kona Cafe, Walt Disney World, Polynesian Resort, Traveling With Kids, Family Travel, Diapersonaplane, Diapers On A Plane
The Polynesian Resort at Walt Disney World is incredible, to say the least. One can only expect the same from any restaurant housed within the perimeter. The Kona Cafe is a simple restaurant, without much styling or motif, but the food is worthy enough to bring us back again and again. We’ve now dined at the Kona Cafe twice....

Kyoto Imperial Palace, Emperor, Japan, Kyoto, Traveling with kids, Family Travel, Diapers on a plane, diapersonaplane
For all the hooplah about walking the grounds where the once Emperor of Japan once ruled his kingdom before moving the palace to Tokyo, there sure isn’t much to see. The Kyoto Imperial Palace located in the southern part of the city is nearest to the Imadegawa JR Station. It offers entrance for guests to freely walk the grounds...

It is as if you stepped into Monet painting, still wet from the paintbrush, with droplets of dew from the morning chill, rays of sunshine peeking through the cracks in the trees, and the fish lapping at the surface of the water upon your arrival. This is the Heian Shrine. A Shinto Shrine built in 1895 for the city...

During our time in Kyoto we had one objective, and that was to visit as many shrines and temples as possible, including all the really grand and magnificent ones. We discovered while searching out the shrines and temples we wanted to visit, that there are hundreds of hidden gems waiting to be discovered. In fact, Kyoto is home to over...

I was 9 years old the first time I read Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky. This still remains one of my favorite books, no doubt in part, because it left such a lasting impression upon my young mind. The internal dilemma Raskolnikov is tormented with throughout the book is so raw and pointed. The fear, loathing, and guilt is...

Frau Weiting, my high school German teacher would have been so proud of me conversing with and enjoying the ambiance of the small replica of Germany, in Epcot, at Walt Disney World! This small version of Germany seemed to be a direct transplant from the country in Europe. We've yet to visit this specific country, but surely it's accurate...

From the long path leading up to the steep stone staircase this site begs to be examined. We found this beautiful residence on a detour. We had planned two days of touring temples and shrines, having mapped them along a specified route. As we were walking up the street, we couldn’t help but stop due to how intriguing the...
