    ... abound I explore the bamboo groves will Isao once again. The pictures talk this place up. It is good, but also quite small. More interesting was watching people scramble to try and catch a photo or two of the passing tourist trains! Walking to a crowded bridge we watched water cascading over a weir before heading off along the river on an empty path.

    ... all tourists, having paid for the experience, and will gladly pose for photos. We didn't see any Geisha rushing off in the dim of the evening, heading to an event at some upscale tea house.
