... people a bit. We got through the gates and straight away you are faced with a stunning golden building reflected on a peaceful pond in a beautiful garden Although crowded the garden was surprisingly peaceful.

On the way out there are all sorts of vendors with small stands offering samples of delights that you ...

... station with line number 10 and can go on. At the half of the way, you should stop by at the coffee "Pomme cake & cafe" try the self might cake. Best for me was the Orange Cake.

As a plate was slid down and in, the system would keep track of the number of plates. After 5 plates, the monitor would play a game like a race or some competition.

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. On the tour on Wednesday, Johnny had said that this was the number one visited shrine in Japan. I do think it was the most ...
