... 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 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 ...
