Bump into Akihito and Michiko (Imperial Family)!
It seems that someone in our group brought cold weather here though it was nice. Tomorrow we may see snow! Ahhhhh. It was completely coincidence that we bump into Emperor Hirohito and his wife Michiko-san. Everyone in our group got a small Japanese Rising Sun Flag and was waving towards the car from which Akihito and Michiko were waving hands! Well, it was a good memory for this group. Cherry Blossoms were just great! We went to Yasaka Shrine, Maruyama Park, Kiyomizu-temple and Sanjusangen-do temple in the morning. After lunch, the group went farther to the Phoenix Pavilion! Though it began raining a little towards the end of the day, we accomplished a lot on the very first day!
