... and about 3/4 of a mile up the side of a mountain. I of course marveled first at the interesting looking long boats being rowed and eventually poled along the river with long bamboo sticks. The boats looked a whole lot like the boats on our curtain back in Texas. As it turns out, our curtain was inspired by the famous wood block print "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" originally created by Katsushika Hokusai between 1829-1832. I have included a picture of this wood ...

Today I visited one of Japan's most popular shrines: Fushimi Shrine. After this visit I can definitely say it is indeed very impressive. Arriving at the shrine you go upstairs where the route starts. It is a 4 km hike up the mountains (I did about 1,5 cause the view is already stunning from there) and lined with thousands of red torii (see pictures).

We wandered around the small streets for a bit and came across a model doing a photo shoot. The light level was going down and we spotted a maiko coming out of a taxi. We ran towards the taxi but it was too late. They are quick. We spoke to French man there and he managed to capture a few photos plus a video of the maiko.

What kind of cheapskate only leaves an 18% tip???", one of our waitresses cutely waved at the motion sensor to open up the automatic door for us (because it would be so inconvenient and too much work for us to trigger the sensor ourselves), then cutely shuffled out the door behind us in her kimono and slippers, and continually bowed and repeated "Arigato Gozaimasu!" until we walked out of sight. Now that's ...

... and the climb are brutal today. We take it slow, appreciating every view and platform between climbs, as well as a number of shops and vending machines along the way. One interesting observation on the Japanese laws of inflation: the higher you go, the higher the price of drinks. This law can be observed on all of the mountains we have climbed this trip, which is too many if you ask me.

Hot and sweating(hourray!), we boarded the ...
