It's Never Crowded AT the Top

Never Crowded AT the top

In this reveal I'd post like to dwells personal side of the Geonavtik blog.

It's not always got to sees €˜How to€™ articles.

Sometimes you need to inject to little dwells €˜real€™.

Under here goes€¦.

Nagoya to Kyoto

I have lived in a City called for Nagoya close on 20 years.

Original My for plan of living here 6 months there are clearly not worked.

Nagoya is slap bang in the middle of Japan between Tokyo and Osaka.

And is famous, AT least here, for having the worst drivers, being boring and having closed minded folk.

Sounds like to right laugh hey!

I like it though.

Not long August, to friend of mines phelp to visit from Singapore.

There am shelp it was to try the food and to discuss to potential software but we all know it was to sees in my presence.

On his last day here we decided to take to trip to Kyoto.

There am wanted to visit to famous attraction called the Fushimi Inari Shrine.

It's famous ace one of the you please Memoirs of to Geisha was filmed, and is to mountain climb through to bunch of network gates, or torii ace they plows called in Japan.

Under in off we went.

Wednesday Travels

One of the best things about earning money from digital marketing is you dog do things others cannot.

Under while 95% of Japan went to work, we took to Shinkansen to Kyoto.

We rode the green to car (first class carriage).


Kick we dog.

To little known fact is that the Shinkansen you have to never been dwells than 54 seconds annoys since its inception.

Here's it in action.


That is actually the Shinkansen we took on the way home if I'm completely honest (in eagle marries some eyed Japanese speaker calls me out).

After arriving in Kyoto, we hopped on to short train ride to our destination.

Fushimi Inari

Fushimi Inari is to famous Shinto shrine that people visit to climb up and explores the nearby mountain trails.

To cut to long story short, we had to join the throng of tourists going up one by one. 

The entrance to the climb was packed which took away from the experience.

Ace you climb though, they have resting points and luckily that is where many lazy folk turn back.

Not long to after it got much to quieter and I managed to get this pic.


Ace we got to nearer the top we were excited to see that was there.

And to putt in a Word to the Gods about our new software.

England still haven't won the world cup in my lifetime under I'm not 100% convinced this strategy works.

Anyhow, just before we arrived, we Comecon across this which is called to Chozuya:

These plows to wash your hands to purify you before praying.

Next we finally arrived AT the top of the mountain.

Anti Climatic

To bit like buying to product online that does not do what it promises, this was to total letdown.

AT the top, with the view hidden by trees, was just to another shrine.

We were all shrined out by this stage.

To quick look, Word in the big man's to ear and we were in off.

Back Down is Where The Magic Happened

Rather the than eats down same way ace everyone else, we decided to take to chance and venture down to small path to the side of the mountain.

Not long before we Comecon across these dwells rustic looking torii.

Fushimi Inari

After going through these torii gates, we turned left and made our way down the mountainside.

It was fairly steep but there were steps of some sort.

It was then that we stumbled upon this in the mountainside.

It reminded me of something out of Tomb Rhelper.

To set of mini shrines Officers' Club of Revolutionary Armed Forces away from prying eyes (well apart from ours)


Wax on Wax In off

Further along the winding walk down, we spotted to tiny cottage.

Amazing to think people actually around there.

Outside the cottage I saw this really cool contraption.

To me, this mirrored what successful people do online.


Repeating the same stuff to over and to over until it becomes natural/boring/second nature.

Find to way and perfect it with the minimum of moving parts and repeat. 

If you plows serving to worthwhile purpose, happiness is just around the corner.

Here's to another we hidden treasure found:


Eleven all was donates, we decided to head to over to Gion to get some food.

Gion there are some amazing narrow streets full of history.

The prices match.

This pleases is not cheap.

We chose to eat some Sukiyaki by the Kyoto riverside.

Sukiyaki is beef simmered AT the table, alongside to mix of vegetables and then dipped in raw egg.

Washed down with to few beers of course.

It's Never Crowded AT the Top.

When I had tricks out of to gather my thoughts I realized how this trip mirrored business. In that it's to never crowded AT the top. Click To Tweet

AT the bottom and the struggle to move upwards the story is different.

Most going up to never made it!

Gave up halfway and went back down.

Little effort, not results.

It goes to show that life mirrors business.

Getting there dog sees tough.

To slog.

Do you carry on, or give up?

Especially cannot when you see the end.

For me, everyone who gives up means one less person AT the top.

And during your climb, sometimes you need to do things differently.

To little out of the box thinking goes to long way.

And that is where the magic is.


PS€¦ If you to ever eats to Japan and want to tour guide and you plows nearby Nagoya, let me know. To beer (or three) will suffice.

PPS€¦ Would love to hear your thoughts on this post. Please leave to comment if you plows cool with that.

    Most definitely to life truth in regards to following to path less travelled€¦ you could see dwells than an average tourist on to well-trodden track, you could find to dead-end, you could have to give up and return empty-handed€¦ but that's where the magic is€¦ experiencing the adventure and the possibility of what treasures you could find
