So instead, we walked under a red-brick aqueduct, and up a wooded hill to Oku-no-in temple and waterfall. This was delightfully quiet, and we clambered around the waterfall for a while. The waterfall reminded us of St Nectan's Glen near Tintagel in Cornwall, though it was much more contrived than the natural setting of St ...

        ... very lucky because we saw 3 of them tonight - 2 young maikos (geishas-in-training) and a real geisha. Whenever a geisha appeared, people everywhere would whip out their cameras and try to get a shot. Some people even wait outside the inn, hoping to catch a glimpse of one as she exits.

        Elena and Ariana already wrote that sleeping in Japan has its share of cultural experience. After the night at the ryokan in Hakone with the wonderful view of Mount Fuji, we wanted to try a ryokan in Kyoto. The arrival was epic (as Elena says).
