Kimono Beauty welcomed us before getting to the castle!
Heat and sweat stalked us today! After lunch break we headed to Nishijin Textile Center where the history of special Nishijin textile history was exhibited. There was a Kimono show in which Kimono Fashion show attracted everyone! After the show we walk to Seimei Shrine which enshrines "Abe no Seimei," the most famous official exorcist some 1000 years ago! Then the group was led to Nijo Castle where everyone could enjoy(?) its famous Nightingale squeaking floor and the garden.
