    ... We tried some wasabi peanuts and immediately bought a packet. As I right this I am so annoyed that we only bought one packet because they were oishi desu (delicious) From Kinkaku-ji our next stop was to Kyoto station where we needed to swap our JR vouchers for our actual JR passes. The JR pass is a wonderful thing that allows you unlimited travel on almost every train in Japan (there are a few that are not part of the JR network). The pass lasts for a set ...

    ... crowded bus I have ever been on with the possible exception of one in Athens we took by mistake once. We had to stand for most of the 45 minute trip. Ugh.

    ... products, and prepared meals on plastic dishes with snap-on lids. At check out, after payment, a bill is presented with empty plastic bags for self-bagging. Our purchases today would include a selection of beer, juice, sake (sah-kay), canned coffee, and a Fugi apple, the size of a grapefruit.

    ... site we've been at in Japan, meaning that it was half as crowded as the least crowded site we saw in China.

    The buildings were interesting, but what was most impressive was a) the view back down over Kyoto, and b) the natural springs coming out of the hillside. You wait your turn, then get to reach out with ladles with very long handles to catch some water from the springs and drink it. It's supposed to bring good luck and make ...
