Kyoto: Through a Thousand ‘Torii’ Gates

“As a writer, I feel a certain humility in trying to describe Kyoto. It is an exquisite city, elegant and complex and filled with layer upon layer of subtle meaning. One could spend a lifetime trying to describe it and not do more than scratch its surface.”Lori

 

I toured beautiful, freaky, and very moving Buddhist temples as well as some slightly boring castles. Saw a pair of geishas walking to work in the entertainment district and a whole passel more arriving by taxi. I drank wine with a friend I met in Hong Kong and poked through shops and even got to see my uncle and cousin in town. But mostly I just walked around Kyoto, looked at old buildings and stuffed my face. Maybe it was best I left when I did. Three days of that was fantastic; more might have convinced me to stay.
