Japan Scans! Part 2

Continuing on from my earlier post, the scans just keep on comin'.

Here's a ticket to Sanjusangendo Temple in Kyoto (jpg):

Back of the same ticket - this basically lists out some of the rules you have to follow, like no food, no photography, you may need to show this ticket, and follow the posted rules inside. (jpg)

The Sanjusangendo Temple brochure (multi-page PDF):

Here's a ticket to Kiyomizu Temple (jpg):

Back of the same ticket - poetic! (jpg)

Unfortunately, I didn't see any brochures at Kiyomizu.

On to Kyoto Tower. This tower offers both a day and a night ticket - since we were a pair, the clerk gave us one of each even though we visited during the day. Here's the day ticket, with Tawawa-chan in full effect (jpg):

Night ticket (jpg):

Like a lot of tourist areas in Japan, Kyoto Tower also has brochures in both Japanese and English - and it's not just a difference in the language. Often the actual content and imagery is different too. Here's the Japanese brochure (multi-page PDF):

And here's the English version (multi-page PDF):

Yeah, I've got one or two brochures for Tokyo Tower too, and it's pretty slickly produced. A big contrast to the almost down-home feel of the Kyoto Tower brochures.

That's it for today - we're about 1/4 the way through!

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
