‘Kyoto Dreaming,’ a Romantic and Lively Little Travel Escape Film

Japan is one of those places that just excites me—the ancient culture that embodies exquisite and handsome design, Buddhism, honor and bravery, and the deep appreciation of nature and beauty. All set on a lush, green island stage.

Kyoto Dreaming is an artful little travel journal of the visual sort, edited together into a package easily consumed for the desk-ridden wanderlust sufferer like myself.

The artist-come-traveler that made the short film diary is Thomas Simon, a freelancer and aspiring film maker who’s “focused on the goal and loving the journey.” Just how it should be.

“We spent five days in the wonderful place that is Kyoto. The Japanese culture, the people, the colors, the hospitality, and endless discoveries of this amazing country made this trip one of my favorites. I hope you find a glimpse in this video of the beauty we’ve experienced.”

Start dreaming, because dreams turn into wonderful memories if you go chase them. ‘Kyoto Dreaming’ proves that.
