Konichiwa! Alive in Kyoto is written from Kyoto, Japan, by Nils Ferry who is originally from California. He’s a Kyotophile and he offers a good insight to Kyoto through his posts and his amazing pictures.

My favourite section is the Japan/Kyoto category for its beautiful photos and/or descriptions of very Japanese elements such as sakura, the Shichi-Go-San ceremony or the Fire Festival.

This is a great blog to do a little bit of research before a trip, but also to enjoy learning about Kyoto from wherever you are, for example, your comfortable armchair.
