japan day 3 – kyoto . disney store . nishiki market . katsukura

This building. πŸ˜‚ Don’t know who so evil, stick the sticker there. TC thought we are really staying in NASA. 🀣


Took a walk along to river to town


Shopped at the Disney store. They have things like dollhouses and those Alice in the Wonderland home decorative items are so pretty!

I’m here for only beauty and the beast. 😍 Too bad I can’t find tsum tsum for the rest of the characters. Gonna try the store at Osaka.


Food galore at Nishiki Market.

Saw Mike Chen’s Kyoto youtube video, there’s this tangerine mochi and TC has been wanting to eat it. Yes, tangerine is juicy, just a little sweet but the mochi around it tastes like the skin around snowskin mooncakes. Really not a fan of snowskin. 😐

Bought a packet of Houjicha tea leaves here. Packet was filled to the bream.

These scallops. 😍😍😍

Although I don’t like butter but it doesn’t have the milky taste that I hate and most importantly there’s a sweet corn fragrance. I’ve looked at the other stores, it’s either just boiled in water or grilled until it looks dry.

Best. Big, juicy and sweet.

I always crave for this tamago. Really don’t know how they make it so smooth.

Soft mochi in soybean powder. 😍😍😍

The flowers. 😍 Too bad, I can’t bring them back.

Snooppy shop. Very cute but I didn’t get any.

I saw a shop selling custard filled porcupines and chocolate croquette. Please skip them. Just interesting but doesn’t taste good.

Soymilk store. We had the matcha soymilk ice cream, it’s not the creamy kind, it’s more like ice; frozen slushie. Soymilk donuts are good; fluffy and mildly sweet.

Tofu skin is the best! Eaten with soy sauce and a little bit of wasabi. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Bought a pack of sweet strawberries for tonight.


There’s a mini Kitano Tenmangu Shrine near Nishiki. What’s different is that they have moving mechanisms.

You can enjoy the plum blossoms here too.


Wanted to visit a few other shrines but they close early during this period until 28 Feb.

Nevertheless, it was still a good stroll.


That’s Kyoto tower.


Headed to Isetan for Pork Cutlets. Katsukura at The Cube, it’s at the 11th floor’s Eat Paradise. Would take quite some time to find.

We ordered from the premium range, costs around Β₯2,000 for 120g. Pork is really tender. Even the barley rice is good. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘


If you have time, since you are already at the top level, go take a look at the scenery around.


Ballroom range for Sylvannian Families! 😍😍😍

Argh! Why so pretty? That sprig of cherry blossom. πŸ‘



Got the hotpot set from the supermarket, the soup packet is included at the bottom. Surprisingly good.

Donuts are from a little stall at Kyoto Station. Very doughy. Meh. Just cute for pictures.
