... but unfortunately i have'nt been able to figure out it's name. Actually i've seen several temples underway, there's a lot of them in Kyoto! After a nice bikeride of about 45 minutes i arrived at the pavilion entrance. After passing some souvenir shops i entered the pavilion grounds. Got to see a great sand sculpture depicting waves on the ocean and Mt Fuji. After a nice and relaxing walk (even though it was again crowded) through the moss garden, i went ...

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.

Hopefully our wishes will come true!

There were also ancient sculptures of different gods and the boys picked out their favourites. They were the ones with the fiercest monster faces and sharpest weapons! We also walked around an old Geisha district ...

On to Kyoto

... years ago. One of the things I was looking forward to was going up in the Kyoto Tower, which is on top of the hotel, That's not going to happen this time. It's closed for renovations. I checked in, left things in my room and headed out.

I decided to go to Nishi Hongan-ji, a Buddhist temple in the neighborhood. It was late in the day by the time I got there. As I wandered ...
