... your guests. It was lovely to have a day with them and for Moeko to show us part of her country and culture. We visited the Osaka Tower, Tsutenkaku, for a view of the built-out skyline along with Osaka Castle which was quite beautiful set in a lovely large garden.

We ventured out for some ramen at a nearby shop and soon realised that in Kyoto you don’t even have to try to take amazing Japanese photos as there are temples and kimono clad women walking around in every direction. We visited the Kennin-ji temple which we just chanced upon and strolled around amongst the serene Zen ...
