“PAUL SMITH” in Kyoto

I went to Kyoto to see an exhibition of “PAUL SMITH” with my friend on July 17th. It was so a muggy day.
When we got to the museum, there was a long line to get in and after entered into the museum of course there were many people. I was just surprised how popular PAUL SMITH was. Since there were too many people inside, we quickly glanced around the exhibits and took some pictures and bought a few clear files as souvenir for myself and left the museum.
I like PAUL SMITH’s clothes very much. I was disappointed that I couldn’t spend more time at the exhibition because of the crowd.

It was MUGGY in the Nanzenji-temple

Then we went to “Nanzenji-temple” by a taxi. We didn’t want to walk outside under this humid weather. Since Nanzenji-temple is a very famous place, there were many tourists. But some tourists looked like they were too tired to walk and just sat down under the big gate. The heat made everybody feel sluggish. I couldn’t think about anything and strolled around to find a cool place. We found the a place near by a river and just stood for a while quietly. Then we left the Nanzenji-temple.

Saved by Shaved ice! I just couldn’t stand under the humid weather.

We wondered on the street with unsteady steps because of the humidity. We just needed a rest to cool our bodes down. Then, we jumped into a restaurant where we can eat shaved ice. We both ordered shaved ice with condensed milk. I felt I was getting better while I was eating it. Although it was just a simple milky taste, I felt it was the best food in the world. It gave me energy and save my life! This was the first time I had shaved ice this year.

Looking back at the day, all I can remember was how hot and muggy Kyoto was and the shaved ice was way better than “PAUL SMITH”.

ポールスミス展の内容はどんなだったの?
洋服しか知らないんだけど、他のものも展示されてるの?
グッズもいろいろあったみたいだね。

京都って、夏暑くて、冬寒いんでしょ?
私には耐えられん。

正直、ちょっと物足りない感じでした。というのも勝手に多大なるサプライズを期待してしまったからかも。洋服のデザイン同様に。
混雑していて、かなりすっ飛ばして周ったので評価できる立場ではないのですが。
でもPAULSMITHファンの人なら、行かないと行かなかったことに後悔するだろうから、ファンは行くべきでしょう…笑。

京都の夏をなめてはいけない…。
身を以て体験。
