    ... Tokugawa shoguns were the Japanese rulers for 700 years, until there was danger from foreign powers around 1856, Tokugawa (the 15th, I believe) decided it would be better and safer to give power back to the emperor. This is the Restoration period. After that, an unscripted visit to a kimono fashion show and store selling high quality woven goods.

    ... hot water, some noodles and a couple of bits of duck and spring onion, very tasteless and way overpriced. Tim's at least looked like it had flavour. It is the only sub-par meal I've had since I've been here though, so I can't complain too much.

    First stop of the tour was a Buddhist temple called Higashi-Hongan-ji. One of the main halls (one housing the Buddha statue) is currently under renovation as well as the main gate, but we took our shoes off and walked through the second main hall: Founder's Hall.
