    ... trying to navigate the path. Although Chion-Ji was closed by the time that we got there, we could see and imagine the immense bulk of the temple from a long way off. So instead we walked to a smaller nearby temple which had great cherry blossom gardens. Whilst viewing the trees, lakes, half closed food stalls, and soaking hamami mats, we encountered the most incredible and probably very old cherry blossom tree. Standing proud on its own, it was majestic and had its own ...

    We decided to take a trip to Kyoto before I started working. We took the train (with several connections) all the way to Kyoto, which took about an hour and a half. Upon arriving at Kyoto Station, we walked off the train and into a massive futuristic looking building. It contains several train lines, stores and restaurants, as well as having a stage and a garden on the top floor, which was ...

    ... of a thousand deer. Literally. It's this utterly nondescript town whose only selling point is that there are thousands of deer roaming the parks, and you can buy biscuits to feed them. So that's just what we did. We went to Nara, fed lots of deer, took a million photos, and went home. It was worth it!

    The low point, for me at least, was that I didn't get to see any geisha. I was determined to see some geisha in Kyoto, because ...

    I met up with a friend from I know from St Andrews. Hélène is french but have been living in Japan for few years and in Kyoto for few month. We met at Demachiyanagi. It's a park at the tip of the island formed by a division of the river. The island is linked to the side of the river by a turtle bridge which makes for a great playground. I was a bit early, and she was a bit late so I had plenty of time to enjoy people watching at the site.
