Himeji Exploration and Arrival in Kyoto

... closed to tourists (we knew this in advance and will be going to a different castle in a few days). Regardless, we got to tour the gardens and grounds, as well as the "long corridor" which, as you might guess, is very long. It had room after room where many women lived and worked in order to tend to the Lord and his people.

After the castle, we got lost (on purpose) in Himeji and found a particular ...

... created Japanese garden. We decided to visit that first, because... I can't remember our reason anymore, but I know we had one.

North of Himeji is a waterfall called Shikagatsubo. It is in roughly the same area as Mt. Seppiko, which happens to be one of my favorite places in the area.

... They brought the steak out on a hot skillet and literally in flames. The meat wasn't fully cooked when it came out so it sat on the skillet and cooked in front of me till I decided to eat it at the perfect temperature for me. It was the most tender and juicy piece of steak I have ever had, and I've had a lot of good steaks before. That was the essence of my time in Japan and it was great. I was really amazed with Japan like I was with South ...
