Osaka Castle & Heian Jingu Shrine!
Snow from the yesterday was still visible on the roof of many cars this morning but the weather got improved though the temperature wasn't rising that much! Since the weather was good, we decided to go to Osaka Castle and the Cherry blossoms were blooming beautifully. After lunch near Kyobashi station near the castle, we went back to Kyoto and visit one of the largest garden in Heian Jingu Shrine before shopping at Kyoto Handicraft Center nearby! Some bought nice souvenirs including woodblock prints and some others bought T-Shirts, Kimono, dolls, etc. GTS's 7-year old niece came with the group and enjoyed friendships since she can speak English because she was born in England!
