Winter Japan Trip 2011-2012

I woke up early, so I walked to Nishi Hongwanji because it was only two blocks away from our inn.

I took the Shinkansen to go south, to Okayama.

I missed my first train while I was shopping for ekiben.
Luckily with the Rail Pass I can reserve another seat for free, so it was no problem.

At least the lunch was worth it.

I only had time to visit the Okayama Castle.

I didn't have time to go inside.
Maybe next time.

I barely had time to buy some kibi dango before getting back on the train.

I headed to Iga Ueno next.

The Ninja Museum of Iga-Style is in the same area, so I went there next.

I took a lot of pictures here for reference.
I translated a bunch of stuff about ninja (KAGETORA, NARUTO, etc) and I wish I had the information back then.
Oh well.


I went back to Kyoto in the evening.

After a hearty meal...

Tamago to Watashi (The Egg and I)

I walked to Kiyomizu Temple from the station.
It was a looooong walk. I don't really recommend it.

But it was worth it. It was so pretty!

Unfortunately pictures weren't allowed.
It was really beautiful.
Worth the extra 600 yen.

My pedometer was still on California time, so it only counted half of my day.
