... from our long day, we decided not to venture far for supper. One of the places that caught my eye was a restaurant that was set up with a bar that was a massive hot plate and you could sit and watch the guys cook in front of you.

This hotel is in a shopping alley.  We then went to the Sho-ren-in Temple. It was beautiful. It used to be a place of imperial residence.  Tonight we will go out for dinner.  Lots of love, ...
