    ... thing?

    We jump on another bus and take the short ride to Ryoan-ji a temple dating back to 1450. The temple's claim to fame and our reason for a visit is it's dry garden.

The lights were soft but gave enough light to enjoy the busy street. We found a quite side streetand decided to take a walk through the small buildings, it just looked like a cut out of a play. The street was very narrow, but cars and taxis managed to get by all the pedestrians ...
