|Kansai Pictures, Part Third. Finally!
||[Jun. 24th, 2015|10:34 am]
On day 3 of my Kansai trip, I went to Kyoto. (This was seven weeks ago, but I'm flaky about posting pictures. On this trip, I was also flaky about taking them; all of these were taken with my phone, rather than my proper camera.) My old friend Mike met me when I got off the bus, and we went to the Toji-in Temple.
This striking Daruma image stands at the entrance to Toji-in.
The garden is extraordinary.
Mike and I had lunch at this 'Cafe Bianco.'
It was bright and cheerful.
Mike went back to his job, and I hung around another temple.
Ryōan-ji Temple is a place where people go to take pictures of rocks.
I stayed for a while, sat on a bench with a book. It was quiet and calming there.
In the evening, Mike and I went to touristy Gion for a meal.
And a drink.
When we came back to Kobe, we wrapped up the evening with a round of Kobe Knockouts at International Bar Nasty House.
