Before the trip began, we jotted down the top five places or things we wanted to see or do in Japan.
One was the Golden Temple in historic Kyoto and that was the first stop on our Sunday radar screen.
Out the night before, we were chilled to the bone. The winds picked up and the temp dropped below freezing, So, it was no surprise …
... 8217;s much more fun dancing in the rain than hiding under some sort of umbrella and getting just as wet. Embrace everything fully - that’s my approach anyway.
