Day 2 in Kyoto started with a lazy morning and a trip to Sanjusangen-do temple, which has 1001 Budda’s all lined up in one long hallway (where they perform archery once a year). A spectacular sight.
We then met up with Nick and Miki for an afternoon trip to Arashiyama to see Tenryuji Temple and the atmospheric Bamboo forest. Delicious green tea’s and sweets followed. Later that evening Nick and Miki invited us to their apartment for a Japanese banquet of traditional food. We at the end of our stay in Kyoto we felt so spoilt thanks to Nick and Miki’s generousity. We were very sad to say goodbye.
