Full Blooming Cherry Blossoms in light rain!
Slight rain all day long yet Cherry Blossoms were all blooming here and there! Walking to Nijo Castle through Shinsen-en Park and enjoyed squeaking flooring and gardens, and sure some souvenirs! A city bus took us to the Silver Pavilion which is the beginning point of the Philosopher's Trail and the place GTS was born! Sakura along the Philosopher's Trail were in full bloom and we walk and walk and walk to get to Eikando (Zenrin-ji) Temple and Nanzenji Temple where students had a chance to observe monks' chanting ceremony! Oh, yes, everyone met GTS' mom near the temple before heading back to Hotel! It was a Sakura blooming light rainy day!
