Saturday evening turns into Maiko safari as we hide out trying to spot the apprentice geisha hurrying out to their teahouse appointments, trying to avoid the flashing of foreigner cameras.
A visit to the manga museum turned surreal as it turned out to be the local hangout for twenty-something girls dressed as manga characters (and a guy dressed as Ronald McDonald... go figure) posing for cameras.
Being Kyoto, we also fit in some compulsary temple visits, and a trip to the monkey park to feed the free roaming monkeys.
