  1. Day 8, 9, and 10 - Hot springs and Mt. Fuji in Hakone, plus okonomiyaki and shopping in Tokyo.

    Haven't had time to update lately. The day before yesterday (March 14th) we left Kyoto and went to Hakone, a nice and smaller town close to Mt. Fuji. We went to a ryokan (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryokan_(inn) some way up in the mountain heights of Hakone, and stayed there overnight, in order to be able to see Mt. Fuji up relatively close, and in order to bathe in the natural, geothermal hot springs that are there. The ryokan is built around one of them. The journey was long, and the weather ...

  4. Day 7 - Shimogomo temple, Sakura, eagles, shopping.

    Not much that happened today. Resting day without any particular plans before we finally leave Kyoto and head to Hakone tomorrow. Most went to shop in various places, but me and 3 others went to the Shimogomo temple, another temple on the Unesco world heritage list, though smaller. Lots of those apparently. You can never get enough temples. ;-) Also finally got to see a Sakura tree in full bloom, so I took some pictures of that. Also saw several eagles, but didn't manage to take any pictures of ...

  5. Day 6 - Arashiyama monkey park, Tenryu-ji and Kodai-ji temples, festivals, and a bamboo forest.

    Eventful day today. We first went to the Arashiyama mountain, where there is a park with wild and free roaming, but gentle and trusting snow monkeys, that are used to people. There are park staff that take care of the monkeys and feed them. We were able to feed them as well. The view from the top of the mountain was also amazing. Then, when we were on our way down from the mountain, we were stopped by two Japanese guys who asked us if we were willing to be filmed by their TV crew along with 4 ...
