    ... where we are greeted at the stop by our teacher, Taro-san. We also meet Jacques, a fellow traveler taking the class with us, who coincidentally also hails from Montreal. I tell you, you can travel halfway around the world and find home in the most unexpected locations!

    Taro leads us to his home, not far from the bus stop, where we meet up with 2 more travelers, Ting and Kaylyn from New Zealand. Taro also introduces us to his ...

    First stop today was... yet another shrine, this one the Kiyomizu shrine. It's sort of to the side of the city, so we got to figure out how to ride the buses to get there. We wound up on a bus that was specifically aimed at tourists, with a little electronic map at the front to show where you were. Very convenient.

    We're reaching the stage in the journey where we are all starting to get a little burned out on temples and palaces. Even so, Nijo castle was very impressive. We had tried to visit on Tuesday, only to discover that it was closed that day, so it was first on our agenda for today.
