    ... 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. There is a designated path to follow to approach the pavilion and then climb above it so you can look down on it and the lake that it sits beside. On the way out there are all sorts of vendors with small stands offering samples of delights that you ...

    ... market to be honest, more of a regular market with people selling food, clothes, handicrafts etc. On the outer edges of the market we did find a few sellers with second hand goods and bric-a-brac so it did have at least part of it like a flea market. We bought mainly food which was very tasty and a couple of trinkets. Oh - we bought some dried strawberries and figs for our train trip in a couple of days.

    ... selected, a little toy train would chug down the track and stop at your table and beep until the food was removed. The used plates were slid into a slot in the wall. 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 ...
