Kyoto, Japan — There’s almost no better place in Japan to spend cherry blossom season than in Kyoto.

The Orange Traveler was fortunate enough to visit the city from Monday until Thursday, and the views had me wanting to stay forever. I explored multiple historic shrines across the city, scaled the slopes of Arashiyama to hang out with some monkeys, hiked Mount Inari and admired the natural beauty around the city.

More unique content, including additional videos and in-depth articles about the city, will be made public in the coming weeks. In the meantime, be sure to follow The Orange Traveler on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for live updates and useful travel information.

Without further ado, here’s a short video of my experience in Kyoto:
