... It was cool!
We soon were off on the romance train. It was very beautiful looking out onto the gorge. After our ride we went to a Ninja movie set. It had some attractions and a Ninja show. We couldn't understand the show because it was all in Japanese. It was good though because they flipped of high platforms and it looked like they were actually fighting each other.

It was a lovely walk down the mountain and we went in search of some yummy food! We settled on more ramen today and it was delicious!
Then it was to Tenryu-ji - a Zen temple. We bought the admission to the gardens and we visited our first Japanese gardens in Japan! We took like "zen" photos ...
