Ah Kyoto, land of temples! In fact, there were so many temples and other things to talk about, so rather than drone on and on about each one, we will leave you simply with a photo montage of our 3 days in Kyoto.

Let's do a quick highlight:
1. Geisha- we saw many and they were beautiful!
2. Temples - to say the least, we were templed-out at the end!
3. Daimonji Festival - Lighting the mountains on fire to guide the spirits of Obon back to where they belong. Super cool!
4. Great city vibe, especially a hostel right on the banks of the river in Gion district!

If you'd like to know more, just ask!
