First Rainy day!! to the Castle!

Today is the first real rainy day which requires an umbrella! July 7th is the Milky Way Festival Day (たなばた) on which every student wrote down his/her wish on a paper slip to decorate the Bamboo branches!

After the lunch, we dropped by at the Nishijin Textile Center where we enjoyed some shopping and Kimono show. A few blocks south of the Textile Center is the Seimei Shrine which is famous for Japanese Traditional Exorcism in 11th century.

Rain continued to follow us to the Nijo Castle!
