    ... at Kiyomizu-dera, which seemed to be the hot-spot for fieldtrips of irritating high-school students. The Fushimi-Inari Shrine was also quite special. Here, there are thousands of bright orange traditional gates which lead you through the grounds along with amazing orange pagodas and shrines. These temples were built in 701AD, but you would never know as they are so well maintained and seem to always sport new a coat of bright orange paint. We also visited the emperor's ...

    ... oblivious to all the attention. She was classy.  The second thing that stands out is the visit to Kiyomizudera, the first temple I visited for the day. This is a Buddhist temple, and there is a small shrine right next to the main temple called Jishu-jinja, which seems to be dedicated entirely to love.

They roam freely around and will even come up and nip your pocket looking for food. They sell biscuits for the tourists to feed them. I did not partake in the feeding, but I did get nipped a few times. Finally we visited the Kasuga-Taisha Shrine. This one ...

    ... to buy another umbrella (they already had ones they left at the hostel). They were only 400 yen, so no biggy.

    The main selling point of the Ginkakuji temple was the gardens. The temple itself was not open to the public; however the gardens were very well kept with a path to follow. Half way through the walk the rain finally ceased, allowing for some brief photos of the sunlight shining through the water droplets that covered the garden ...

    ... although the temples themselves are magnificent, it is the grounds that give them their beauty. We took a stroll down Philosopher's Path, which is the pictureque cherry-tree lined canal that everyone imagines when they think of Japan and the place where 20th century philosopher Nishida Kitaro walked for daily meditation. However, we arrived in Kyoto a couple weeks early of full bloom so the canal looked more like Leeds beck. More culture involved visiting ...
