Japan’s New High Speed Bus Travels From Kyoto to Mount Koya

Keihan Bus and Nankai Rinkan Bus are bringing back their high-speed bus service this year which will run from September 18 to November 30. The service will incorporate a mandatory booking system, making it even more convenient than last year.
Mount Kōya is the name of the temple settlement found in Wakayama which first settled in 819. It is the centre for the Kōyasan Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism and is designated as a World Heritage Site, one of many found in Kyoto alongside Kinkaku-ji, Kiyomizu-dera, and Shimogamo Shrine.

Hoshino Resorts OMO3 Kyoto To-ji Opens For Business
23.April.2021 | SPOT
The all-new Hoshino Resorts OMO3 Kyoto To-ji hotel opened its doors on April 15, 2021, welcoming guests to the surrounding area home to To-ji, Kyoto’s famous Shingon Buddhist temple. The hotel’s concept is “The Heart’s Trip Through Time and Space,” and aims to showcase to guests the sights and wonders of the To-ji area. The temple itself, which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just a 5-mintue walk from the hotel.
To-ji has a long history dating back to 796 when it was founded. Its 1,200 year or so history has spanned multiple periods of Japanese history. In 823, the Emperor Saga honoured the Japanese monk Kukai and bestowed the temple to him. Kukai made To-ji the central seminary of esoteric Buddhism and built various buildings such as the pagoda and halls. Since then, To-ji has been the headquarters of this esoteric sect of Japanese Buddhism. It is a hot spot for tourists and a sight many have most likely seen when looking up must-visit locations around Kyoto.
Inside the hotel
A delightful assortment of menu items
A stroll around To-ji

Deepen your knowledge at the Shinbashira book table
OMO Hotels introduce their guests to the local area’s secrets, allowing them to jump right in to all that’s on offer. It acts as a resort of sorts with the hotel at the centre and the local sights within walking distance. To enjoy all there is to see, OMO offers the Go-KINJO tour guide service which comes in two forms: Go-KINJO Map and Go-KINJO Activity. Both have guests led by an OMO Ranger who are experts in the area and will take guests to see various locations while providing commentary.
On their tour, guests can learn all there is to know about the To-ji area, both past and present. That includes information about famous local stores not listed in guidebooks. It’s an opportunity to discover the true To-ji area from when the temple was built to today by actually walking around seeing the sights yourself.

‘hotel tou nishinotoin kyoto by withceed’ is a new hotel in Kyoto managed by Withceed Hospitality Management that held its grand opening on April 20, 2021.
Located just a 10-minute walk from JR Kyoto Station, the hotel is situated between Nishi Hongan-ji and Higashi Hongan-ji, two temples and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The hotel’s concept is Oku (奥) which is Japanese for “deep,” “interior,” or being at the “heart” of something. Its aim is to offer guests a place to dive deep into Kyoto’s traditions and culture in a space that puts great focus on its interior design.
The design is built around themes of ‘light and shadow,’ ‘distance,’ and ‘gloss’ which expresses the notion of depth. The lattice windows and sliding doors pour in natural light, and the single boulder makes one think of being in a garden. It’s a design to tickle the senses and imagination which in turn lets guests feel the depth of culture and being deep within the space.
The hotel has its own cafe/bar fusion called ‘cafe&bar oku’ which serves food and drinks from a range of Kyoto restaurants and cafes such Kyoto-style meicha tea from Ippodo Chaho, a tea shop that first established back in 1717, as well as a traditional Japanese breakfast rice porridge called okaisan made using Hachidai Megihei rice, and more. Customers can also enjoy drinks from Allpress Espresso, a New Zealand speciality coffee roaster setting up shop in Japan for the first time.

Alice in Wonderland Themed Afternoon Tea Buffet ‘Lost in Europe’ Heads to Nagoya
This spring, Hilton Nagoya is set to serve up a special afternoon tea set and buffet plan at its first floor all-dining restaurant IN PLACE 3-3. The theme of the afternoon tea line-up, which will be served either as a set-only plan or the set plus a buffet, is ‘Lost in Europe.’ Fans of Lewis Carroll’s beloved novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland can look forward to jumping in the rabbit hole as they indulge in a colourful and delicious line-up that sends them straight to wonderland.
The plans will run for three months during which three different menu line-ups will be served, each with a European feel to them as Alice finds her curiosity tending away from Japanese cuisine to the delectable assortments of overseas.

Dishes will be plated with desserts fusing together Spain’s food culture with that of Wonderland, traditional Spanish desserts, sweet treats inspired by Spanish art, and more. Many of the irresistible items will also be made with almonds – Spain being the second largest producer of almonds in the world.

Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Baymax Mushi-Pan Steamed Bread
With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.
Today, I’ll teach you how to make Baymax mushi-pan steamed bread.
This recipe makes 5 portions
140g strong flour
20g granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
3g dry yeast
3g baking powder
5g vegetable oil
85ml-90ml milk (room temperature)
Mix everything together in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can also knead the ingredients well by hand.
Ferment at 40℃ for 40 minutes. If you don’t have a fermentation machine, leave in a warm environment.
Once the dough has doubled in size, divide into five portions and put into separate cups. If using paper cups, rub a little bit of oil inside.
Bake in the oven at 40℃ for 20-25 minutes.
After baking, steam in a steamer for 12-13 minutes. If you don’t have a steamer, put into a frying pan or large pot with a little bit of water and cover.
Once cooled, use some nori seaweed to make Baymax’s face and you’re done!
