    ... Ji Temple. We trekked through the winding streets of Sannenzaka and Ninenzaka and were transported back in time. The streets are lined with traditional craft and sweet shops, and Japanese women and men walked around in kimonos; it's a quaint and charming area.

    ... exactly how I pictured it from the book! There are some parts that retain a lovely oldy-worldy feel though.

    I wasted no time on my first day in dumping my bags at my hostel and setting out to explore Gion. I almost immediately came across the main geisha-spotting road.

    ... a toilet but we did not have a shower After having a quick rest at our hotel we set out to do some afternoon activities The first activity was the Osaka aquarium.
