Lots of temples

... at the Fushiminari-taisha Shrine ( and lots of little shrines and lots of steps to climb); and the Imperial Palace ( well the park as I didn't have a reservation to enter the palace) to list a few. The structures are impressive - lots of dove tailed joints ( no nails ) but probably the bit I liked best were the parks around a few of them.

Easy city to get around - walk or bicycle, all ...

... near Kyoto's main train station was packed with tourists going exactly in direction we needed to go, so we decided to walk to the hotel instead. It wasn't very far, so we got there in 30 minutes, by around noon. The hotel is a ryokan, an old wooden building, very authentic. It deserves a separate description, so I'll come back to ...

... pleasure because the place has its own value. As the first stop, it didn't disappoint us. Nice view, solemn atmosphere, and a small walk in the trails was good. We had our lunch on the bench along the trail.

On our way downhill, we passed by the tower as we headed toward Toodai Rd. for bus. It's getting hot in the afternoon. Our second stop was the train museum 梅小路 because my son is a train-mania.
