Kyoto is a good city for walking. This is particularly true in the historic district of Higashiyama on the east side of the city.
If you thought I was finished writing about our trip to Japan last September, you would be wrong. There’s still material for a few more posts, including this one.
When we emerged from our Kyoto hotel in the morning we would look across the street and see this large wooden pagoda. Upon inquiring, we were told that it’s part of the Toji Temple complex.
Arashiyama is a historic area on the western outskirts of Kyoto. Lots of sightseers are drawn there, in part by a forest of enormous bamboo trees.
We’ll be back on Saturday. Lots and lots of pictures to share.
