Eikando-temple saved us from the rain!
After lunch around the academy, we took 30 min bus ride to get to Nyakuoji-Shrine and Eikando-temple. As soon as entering the main hall of Eikando, it began raining. While touring within the hall, rain added some nice mysterious feeling into the group. We found out what it was when we lost three students on the way back to the original bus stop we got off! Those three must have been turning left when we turned right! The rest of the group headed to Kyoto Handicraft Center where some bought Yukata for Gion Festival! Most of them will leave for Tokyo by night bus after Gion Festival and will be back early morning of Monday, the Ocean Day holiday!
