    ... be an unmarked track up the hill so I decided to check it out which is how I ended up on the Kyoto trail. Climbing the hill took me up to Mt Daimonji then along the Kyoto trail until I came out at Nanzen-ji temple. It was fantastic weather for an impromptu hike and I had a great time. I mainly met pensioners along the way - putting my fitness level to shame - but everyone was incredibly polite and friendly. After ...

It's a five minute walk from the bus stop to the temple and once you enter the grounds you are in a lovely garden. It was really quite busy today so they ...

    ... out the sites. We went back to our washing (twice) only to find that they weren't yet dry!! We plugged another $4 in each machine and decided to go look at Nijo Castle. We walked for kilometers in the freezing cold - then it started snowing!! We finally got to the castle and were so excited, only to see a closed sign :(.
