City Zoo and then Walking on Fire!

At the almost end of the program now, we visited Kyoto City Zoo which is under renovation and has changed a lot since last visit. Luckily we had a chance to see "feeding" of Lions, Jaguar, Tiger, Hippo, Monkeys!

Heavy rain shower attacked us right before leaving the zoo but soon stopped and we were saved!

Tonight (7/28) was the only day of the year for Tanukidani Fudo-in Hiwatari (Walking on Fire) Festival. Our program never had a chance to get to this Festival because we usually finished the program by then!

Most students had a chance to walk on fire with assistance of monks! The head monk, Ryokai-san, is GTS' senior member of college days!
