The Golden Pavilion and the Rock Garden really rocked!

Under the super good weather, we first got off the bus to visit Wara Tenjin where portable shrines had been prepared for the soon coming festival!

5 minutes walk from there took us to the Golden Pavilion which was shining and shining.   Two bus stops ride took us to the Rock Garden where Shingo used to hang around in his college days 30 years ago.

We ate lunch at Ritsumeikan University which Shingo was graduated from and were headed to Hirano shrine where Flower viewing events were in active  While Shingo was greeting to the School head of Kyoto International Academy, which will hos us during oour study abroad program, Students enjoyed visiting Kitano Tenmangu

On the way back to the hotel, we stopped at NIshijin Textile Center to enjoy shopping and Kimono show!

Night meal was our only group dinner joined by a two students of Shingo, who were traveling around Japan individually.  With addition of some school staff from KIA, we had a great time.
