We spent the morning preparing for leavin Kyoto tomorrow. We made reservations for the Shinkansen to Himeji, where we want to spend tomorrow and for Hiroshima, the next stop on our trip. Then we payed another visit to our favorite Udon shop, which we found earlier this week in one of the back alleys.
In the afternoon we payed a second visit to Heian-jingu and visited its gardens. Although most trees were loosing their leaves and most maple trees were still green, it was a beautiful sight. I believe, that it must be stunning in spring during hanami or in summer, when all the lilies around its ponds bloom.
After visiting the gardens, we went to Gion and visited Yasaka-jinja. We actually had visited the shrine twice, but we were always late and most of the shrines on the premises were closed already. It turned out, we didn’t miss much.
