Thursday 3rd December

Now we are at Kyoto, Kinkakuji Temple. Hot off the press:

Kinkauji Temple -the Golden Pavillion.

After visiting Kinkakuji, we walked a short distance to a kaiten sushi restaurant. It was good fun to choose from the conveyor, but more fun to select from the touch-screen menu and have one's order delivered to the table by train. Mr Smith did very well.

We then went by bus to opposite corner of Kyoto, to Kiyomizudera, another of the "must see" temples in Japan.There was some restoration being done, but we still got a good view of the main part of the building.

On the way home, at Kyoto Station,we saw the station Christmas tree.

It is an early start tomorrow, as we head into the country to visit Mr Kuze's old university friend at his kindergarten.
