I've stayed at this business hotel numerous times. Location and reasonable price are the main reasons. Right outside Kyoto station, so close it's almost connected. About 5500yen per night. Clean rooms. Restaurant on main floor. Staff are not too generous with the smiles or the English, but do their job. Busy place. Across the street is the underground mall connected to Kyoto station. Lots of restaurants inside.

Tanja sat down with the kids and had some lunch (donuts!) as we were tired of walking in the extreme heat - the hottest that we've felt in Japan so far.

... what all those strange dishes are that we've seen in our travels. It's an afternoon of learning.
We stop at a tea house in Gion which had caught our attention on our first day in Kyoto for matcha shaved ice and Japanese sweets. It's less stuffy and ritualistic than a real Japanese tea ceremony, so a little more enjoyable. Also, we luck out again, as a big storm hits just as we enter ...
... first take off your shoes and go into the temple. The only way you get to see Saiho-ji is by taking part in their religous ceremony first. They have low tables lined up on the sides of the temple. After we were all seated on the floor a couple monks came in. They started chanting and one played a wooden drum and the other played a couple metal bells that had tones similar ...
... of the wall, and noticed it was cut just like the one at Kyoto Gosho! Inside, parts of the temple are being reconstructed, but you can still enter the Founder's Hall. The Founder's Hall is a huge wooden structure. Before you enter, of course, you have to remove your shoes. Plastic bags are provided for carrying your shoes with you. I have to say, I think tatami mat floors are the best therapy for aching feet! Sort of a massage effect. Walking into ...
