During the second half of day seven we visited two shrines in Kyoto. You can watch the video on my YouTube channel.
Before getting to the shrines, Nicole and I went in search of an afternoon meal. Most restaurants close between 2 and 5P.M., so all we could find was a cafe that had some alright spaghetti.
The first shrine, Kiyomizu-dera, was under renovation so we could only see part of it.
All of the the buses were packed on account of it being tourist season, so we decided to take a taxi to the next shrine. That shrine, Fushimi-inari, is famous for having thousands of gates winding through trails in the woods. The cicada bugs were really loud here too.
Afterwards we tried to get into a fancy restaurant but it required reservations, so nicole and I split off to get tacos while Brandi, James, and Paul went to eat at a hotpot restaurant.
On day eight of the trip: we eat okonomiyaki in Osaka.
