Along the way to Ginkaku-Ji ✽(′ॢᵕ ‵ *ॢ)✽ஐ

I started out at the hotel close to Marutamachi and opposite of the imperial palace :) <=I mentioned the hotel before ;)

I’m fascinated by old Japanese homes :3
Compared to new homes every detail was made by someone imprinting his own methods, mood and history on the pieces he made :)
This, to me, makes them friendly homes that were made with the people living in them in mind :)

Just think of how much skill it took to cut everything that way using hand tools how effective the carpenters must have been to provide a home to people at an affordable price :)
European houses are quite crudely made compared to those…

The fourth from the top is one of my favourites and I would like to live there, take care of it, enjoy the view of the river below or just just work on my motorbike in the entrance :D

I like how every corner and street in Kyoto offers a different view and the chance to discover something nice in the midst of the city :3

I want to visit Kyoto again (๑´•.̫ • `๑)


Last weekend I visited my parents and it was the first time I didn’t manage to do anything in the workshop (^-^;)
It was a very nice weekend though :3
My mother devoted so much time to cook so many nice meals for us :,)
I felt very happy and thankful :,)
Also I said good bye to a friend who’s returning to Japan soon (-_-)
I’m happy we met and I’m looking forward to meeting all my friends who returned to Japan next year :)

Today I got good news :)
The company I had the job interview with last Tuesday accepted me and I’m going to be working for a good company soon :3
I’m happy to have a job soon and looking forward to my financial independence :)
I’ll work as an electrical engineer for designing control cabinets and circuits :)
I hope I can do well and make people feel confident in my skills :)
I’ll focus on applying for work in Japan while working there :) <=I’m feeling a little sad because I feel like the boss there hopes to keep me for the rest of my career…
We’ll see :)

Today I found out that my radiator is leaking (not much it is more like it is dripping :) and it leaked on a workpiece I’ve spent some hours on and ruined it (; _ ;) <=It is stained and warped and twisted (; _ ;)
Hopefully they’ll fix it tomorrow and fortunately it didn’t run on my drills laying right next to it (>_<;)

I tried to make Chashaku today but I screwed up and need to find another solution (^-^;) <=The thinly cut and steamed bamboo cracked while I was bending it so now I’ll try increasing the radius at the bend :)

I wish everyone a great new week with good news and sweet dreams of your favourite foods (^-^)/

正称:「慈照寺」 Actual name: Jishou-ji Being one of the most-famous sights of Kyoto, Ginkaku-ji doesn’t need to be explained any further (I guess). As many Zen gardens, it is particularly interesting in late May/earle June, when the Satsuki (Azalea) are blooming.
