      ... decorated shrines were being hoisted up as drummers sat inside beating out a regular rhythm. The police were soon shouting at us to move along and it did not look promising for obtaining seating in what must be the event in this town's annual calendar...We were just gob smacked but eventually found a way to the road which snakes up the hillside and which the very heavy looking shrines were being carried by the often fearsome looking men, some of whom were apparently ...

      ... any addictive ingredients (it looks like it actually has a lot of vitamin content in it, but not sure - it contains 80%25 of his daily intke of something at least).

The girls did some journaling and then watched a movie on their iPods. Tanja and I watched an episode of Suits. It ...

There were a lot of your groups and other tourists here and it was a bit full, but I still got some good photos and we enjoyed walking around the grounds. We then headed back to the ryokan for a little down time (I tried out the soaking tub and it was awesome!). For dinner we headed back to Kyoto station for ...

      Early morning start to get the bullet train from Tokyo to Kyoto! We made it onto the right train and had 3hrs to relax onboard.
