    ... gone. Today we Toured around Arashiyama and saw two beautiful temples as well as wandered through the bamboo grove. After that we enjoyed a special meal on a boat will being paddled around. Today was truly special and one of my favorite activities.

    ... concierge and the company will pick it up and deliver it to your next hotel the next day. Travelling on the train with our luggage last time was a bit of a gong show, and because our train tomorrow is 2.5 hours, we decided to give it a try! It's unfortunate we're without a bag for one night as it is "next day delivery", but it's easy enough to pack our essentials in our backpacks for one night.

    Tomorrow we're off to Yokohama, the land of Nissan!

None came, and after many derogatory remarks from me about the overhead dive-bombers, we finally just threw ...

    ... Temple.

    I took a brief look around Gokurakuji before working out my next move. Arashiyama was next on my hit list but I was in no particular rush, the only thing I knew about it was that it had a bamboo walk that made for some pretty fantastic photos. I found a comfortable rock in the shade and used my phones data to research what else there was to do. Most of the comments of the area seemed to follow a similar pattern, along ...

    ... them, even after the sun has set. We love seeing them at all times of the day and night, and it is so sad to think that in just a few days they will be gone. The blossoms were just coming out when we arrived in Tokyo five days ago, and we have seen them advance a little bit more each day until today, when every tree we see is in full bloom. What a wonderful spectacle to be able to partake in!
    We began our day with a one hour drive to the city of Nara, which ...
