    ... we headed to Nishiki Food Market. The entire street is covered in and has hundreds of little shops of everything, fish, seafood, tea, sweets , icecreams, vege, wooden shoes and souvenirs.
    There was also a large shopping street, also undercover, at right angles to the market street that we spent some time in too. Considering how hot it was outside it was a good place to be.
    Today was the beginning of Kyoto's four day ...

    ... dragons squirting out water. I can't help but call each one of them Mushu when I see them. All of these temples have been covered with breathtaking painted interior walls (which unfortunately you can't take pictures of) and gardens that give me chills.

We caught the bus back to Kyoto Station and went to the post office to get some ...

    ... them for photos.

    Unfortunately with all this going on we managed to miss our scheduled tea ceremony at En, but since we had spotted our Geisha, all the effort seemed worth it and we went home satisfied.

    Today we took a bus to Arashiyamaa about 40 minutes outside of Kyoto. Once there we meet a Zen Buddhist monk that takes us on a wooden rowboat down the Oigawa River to his temple called Sumnokura Ryoi. The temple is over 400 years old and much more modest them others we have seen. It's quite high up on the mountainside and very secluded.

    A traditional Japanese tea ceremony dates to about 400 years ago and was practiced by the samurai before ...
