    ... hotel and napped (seriously Mom/Julie the cruise director we are so tired!) Mel had scouted out a local restaurant for Soba noodles, which followed our itinerary for the evening - a walking tour of the Gion district. Gion is one of the most exclusive and well known geisha districts in all of Japan.

    Starting promptly at 6PM in the pouring rain we took to the streets of old Kyoto and quickly knew our goal for the evening was to spot one of the 200 Geishas who work in Kyoto. ...
