    ... deities, and the pair of Raijin/Fujin immortals. Unbeatable!

    I also had a chance to watch a Kabuki play at a 400+ year old theater.

    When watching Kabuki, you feel as though you're observing an Ukiyo-e wall scroll come to life - complete with beautiful percussive emphasis, exotic chants and shouts, and the twang of shamisen melody threading it's way through the audience.

    At times I felt as though I were watching an optical illusion - the garish costumes and ...

    ... successfully, and hopefully our wishes for love will come to us in the future. Kyoto is a large city with so much history and preserved sites. It is not uncommon to walk down a major street and then see a preserved temple among stores and restaurants. The people here take pride in their traditions and history. There is simply not enough time to see it all, but I am very happy with what I've seen so far and look forward to whatever I am able to see the following ...

    ... Geisha-spotting. There are some really beautiful areas in Gion, hidden deep in the quieter neighborhoods, away from the tall ugly buildings. The establishments - restaurants, shops - are old-fashioned-looking, wooden, and lit up with paper lanterns. The lane-ways are lined with willow trees and flowering shrubs. You can catch a glimpse of young girls dressed in beautiful kimonos walking around. ...

    ... exactly how I pictured it from the book! There are some parts that retain a lovely oldy-worldy feel though.

    I wasted no time on my first day in dumping my bags at my hostel and setting out to explore Gion. I almost immediately came across the main geisha-spotting road. Disappointingly, the streets aren't teeming with genuine geisha (although they are teeming with tourists dressed up as them) but I did see a few genuine ones on this street during my ...
