Japan - Kyoto (Geishas and temples)

Written on: Thursday January 22nd, 2009

Kyoto was lovely. Although almost everywhere we tried to go and see was closed on that particular day, or you had to book in advance, even though it was totally out of season!

Wandering the streets spotting Geishas was great fun. It was only the second time I've felt star-struck (first time Michael Palin!).

I did manage to get us lost up a snowy mountain in Kibune which meant a couple of hours extra walk and never finding the onsen which was meant to be in the village (Kurama) the other side of the mountain. But it was a nice walk anyway.
