      Today started with early ceremonies at the temple. First there was a prayer service at 7am, followed by a very interesting fire burning ceremony at a building up the street at 7:30am. Prior to the fire burning ceremony, we had written wishes for health and prosperity for our family and friends on wooden sticks, and gave them to the monk to burn at the ceremony. Hopefully our wishes will come true!

      Once, on board, the ladies have done a superb job, the train is spotless. I am in a green carriage, which is the equivalent of first class. I have managed to get on the semi fast train, so it is going to take approx 228 mins as opposed to 128 mins to arrive in Kyoto. I'm not too worried. As the train pulls out of the station on time, a lady walks around handing us celephane wrapped wet towels to wash our hands and face with.

      The train is very smooth, and ...
