After spending the morning in Kobe, we grabbed a Bento box, ate lunch on the train and headed to Kyoto...the ride was about 1 hour.
Handwashing is an important step at temples...neat ornate fountains are stationed at the entrance to the more important buildings. Be warned though...the water is VERY COLD!!
This temple, and some shopping are all we did in Kyoto this time...we were only there a few hours. After dinner, we boarded the train and headed back to our hotel in Osaka. The next day, we had an early flight to Sapporo, so that's where we'll be tomorrow...stay tuned!
