Day 8 – Kyoto

This was my last day in Kyoto and involved a lot of the same old haunts (what can I say, I fell in love with East Gion, Gion, and the river area).  Really, the only new place I went was the Sanjyusangendo Temple.  It’s a very long hall with 33 columns (the name means 33).  Inside there is one large Buddha and 1,000 smaller golden Buddha’s on either side.  Unfortunately no photos are allowed on the inside, but it’s a very peaceful, beautiful place.
