1001 Buddha for Mercy (Kannon) welcomed us!
The weather report told us in the morning that we might have rain in the afternoon. So I have changed the plan a bit, switching the daily plan with tomorrow. Instead of visiting the Fushimi Inari Grand Shrine and climbing up the Higashiyama mountain, we visited the famous "Sanjusan gendo-temple (Rengeo-in)" to meet 1001 statues of Mercy Buddha which some students do need to meet! Though not raining there, it could have rained on the mountain! We will certainly visit the Fushimi Inari Grand Shrine tomorrow! GTS high school friend is running for the senetor now and hopefully re-elected this weekend and resume his duty as "Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary (官房副長官)! Well, GTS visited his election office today to say hello!
