... feel to it.
Kyoto is literally littered with temples and shrines and we would be here a month to hit them all. So I picked out a couple that the Lonely Planet tour book made sound interesting for us to visit.

... less than a dozen hawks performing great feats of acrobatics to secure their meal. The hotel did not disappoint after another long day and is conveniently located in one of the main shopping districts and adjacent to the old Gion district famed for it's Geisha.

Formally known as Rokuonji, the temple was the retirement villa of an important shogun and according to his will it became a Zen temple of the Rinzai sect after his death in 1408. Kinkakuji was the inspiration ...

... path was still crowded. After the must-see bamboo path, we headed for train station, and took the tourist train over the gorge. What impressed was not the train nor the gorge (people on boat on water), but the small town over there. It's a different feeling there, un-Kyoto-like. No traditional houses, but rice fields and rural scenes. The supermarket really impressed us, as we ...
