    ... taste), Sencha (whole leaf green tea), Houraicha (also called genmaicha, Gyokuro mixed with roasted rice), Bancha (second harvest, lower grade) or Matcha (that's the powdered stuff which they use in the tea ceremony). So then it is a question of the temperature of the water, each tea has its own perfect temperature. And then the art seems to be to play with the different parameters: the amount of tea, the temperature of the water, the size of the cup, the amount of ...

    ... for the hike before we finally reached the beginning some 2.3 miles later. The shrine also happens to be 2.6 miles away and almost 3000 ft up. The view was certainly worth all the sweat. The Atago shrine, 972m high was almost completely free of other tourists by the time we got there. When we got down we thought instead of walking another 2 miles, we'll splurge and take the bus. We forgot to disembark in Arashiyama, but as luck would have it, ...

    ... we were both starved. The selection of sushi was fantastic and again the hosts in the restaurant were only too happy to help, my favourite was the tuna gunkan. As the afternoon passed we decided it was time to sort out some washing so we spent the rest of the afternoon in the local cafés whilst we waited for it to be done.
