Good bye to Kyoto

We had breakfast in the hotel.

We checked out quickly and drove our Smart to Tofukuji Temple, which is well-known for its Autumn maple leaves.

Tourists’ cars were not allowed near the temple, so we looked for a parking lot to park our car.  We walked two kilometers to the temple.

It was worth walking.

The leaves were not at their best any more, although, the place was still extraordinary.

People took pictures from the Tutenkyo wooden bridge.

We had snacks and left Kyoto.

We took a rest in a service area of a highway.  Here (hardly) shown is Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan.

We arrived at my parents’ at 5 pM.  We had tea, received Maya-san, and quickly drove home.

We arrived at out apartment at 7 PM.

It was a busy trip, and I am sorry for Katya for her cold and thankful for her driving.  I hope she enjoyed it as much as I did.

    Get well soon Katya… that must have been a hectic, but hopefully inspiring mini-break. Just been checking out her photos – absolutely fantastic.
