Ohayou-gozaimasu! Are you keen to go to Kyoto without traveling to Japan or securing a visa?
Ritoru Kyōto, wakarimashita! A lot of Cebuanos flock to Kyoto City in search of traditional Japanese culture. In Barangay Babag, Cebu City, adjacent to Busay, there is a Japanese-owned tourist destination called “Sachiko’s Little Kyoto.”
It may be a dating spot, an itinerary of witnessing a glimpse of temples and bamboo groves, or a fraction of the magical experience. Take in the splendor of nature, chow down on delectable Japanese food, and learn about Japanese traditions and customs.
Traditional Japanese gates known as torii are most frequently found at Shinto shrines, which are believed to be the residences of the Shinto gods. The torii gates serve as a bridge between the secular and holy worlds. In Sachiko’s Little Kyoto, you can perceive that it is frequently painted in vibrant red or orange.
The Geisha Gallery, a showcase of pictures of the traditional Japanese female performers and hostesses who are recognized by their long, trailing kimonos, conventional haircuts, and Oshiro makeup, may be discovered next to a reclined Buddha if you go through a few more steps. It is a depiction of the historical Buddha in the midst of his final illness. He is supported by his right elbow while lying on his right side, with his hand supporting his head. You can also definitely see the Lucky Cat, also known as a maneki-neko, which is frequently thought to bring luck to its owner. Daruma is another ancient Japanese doll that has come to represent tenacity and good fortune in Japan.
The Hachiko Dog Statue is, however, present there. It is a memorial to the devoted Akita dog who waited at Shibuya Station every day for his owner, even after he passed away. It is one of Japan’s unofficial landmarks in Shibuya. You can only see it here in Cebu, yet it is currently one of the most well-liked gathering locations in Tokyo.
