      ... by the head priest's former living quarters (hojo) which are known for their painted sliding doors (fusuma), but are not open to the public. The path once again passes by Kinkakuji from behind then leads through the temple's gardens which have retained their original design from Yoshimitsu's days. The gardens hold a few other spots of interest including ...

      ... is a large, wooden statue of Kannon, the goddess.  She has 1,000 arms. On each side of her are about 500 human sized statues. They each have 1,000 arms and 11 heads. They say the heads are so she can better handle the suffering of humans. The 1,000 arms help to fight the sufferings. I paid the $6 to get in to see the temple. It was a nice visit. You have to take your shoes off at the entry, which is normal. What I didn't like, though, is they would not ...

It's also there that we saw our first monkeys! They came quite close but let us in peace. A bigger surprise was what was waiting for us on the top of the hill: a stunning view of Kyoto city. And monkeys, lots of 'em. We got to feed them peanuts, but only if we remained inside the feeding house. Any fences you see are not meant ...

      ... meet and greet, we went back to the house. I am staying in a traditional style Japanese room with a futon unfolded on the tatami mat floor. It’s very different than what I am used to, but I hope it’s comfortable. It seems ok so far. My family has a brand new house with all new and modern things.
