Please have a look at the list on the right hand side under 'What I did'. It is not even a complete overview of my four (4!!!!) day sightseeing trip to Kyoto and Nara.

Today we had an easy, calming day - the sun was shining beautifully! We have strolled along KAma river - what a fabulous walk it was - loads of cherry trees in bloom, different types of fishing birds around, otters and other animals in big numbers! Local people sat ...
