    ... checked I had no tattoos I was told the etiquette with the words "you get naked"! And this it how it works. Men and women bath separately.

    1) in the foyer - take of shoes and place in shoe locker
    2) enter another room pay 2.50 to the lady attendant aged about 90 and 'get naked' placing clothes in a different locker. All the other women in there were older than me and it felt like walking into a 'locals pub' where ...

    ... As much as I love scenic places I also love the lights of the city very much. The Dotomburi area was really busy in particular. I think the local 'cool' people were out and about, I find it amazing how the girls can wear such short skirts in such cold weather, but hey I'm not complaining.

    ... On the way we visited Fushimi Inari, a
    shrine with the famous red Torii gates (made famous by Memoirs of a Geisha).
    There have been shrines on this site since 711 AD with new gates being added

    gate!) – very picturesque and an interesting ...

    It was another day for umbrellas, as light rain was falling during most of our trek to Nara, one of the ancient (710-784) capitals of Japan. Again, the rain probably made it a bit less crowded but it's always a challenge to take photos one handed while using your umbrella to try to keep water drops off your lens. But with the recent rain, all the moss and forested areas were strikingly green. Nara is probably most well known for ...
