... quite peacefully that for the good of Japan, power should revert to the emperor, and so, in 1856 it did. This is known as the restoration. Next stop another shinto shrine.

The Industrial exposition fair (an exhibition of development of Japanese and foreign cultures) was held in ...

... to a strange restaurant thing inside a tapestry museum that also seemed to be an information building.
We were given dinner and then went upstairs to another room where a young maiko performed a dance for us and then played a game with some volunteers from the audience whilst singing, then she answered questions from the audience through a translator.

... geisha activities were shut down in Gojo area by the main office (yes, apparently geisha have a main office that regulates their activities and rents them out to tea houses where they entertain guests).

Later in the tour we passed by an old workshop producing tatami mats and another that is famous for making green tea containers. Another fun stop was the original location of a house, where Nintendo ...
