Day 342

A small group of us went on an outing to a quiet neighborhood north of where we’re all staying to see the “Real Kyoto” – there was a gorgeous and serene temple complex, we visited a tatami mat workshop, did a short hike for a beautiful view and finished at a very very low-key (read: borderline sketchy but harmless) bar for a beer and some chatting, and it was so nice to get away from the busier downtown Kyoto and all of the Christmas music in favor of some zen gardens.
