Walk Walk Walk! Over 20km (12miles)

Left the hotel for Nijo Castle via Shinsen'en on foot.  Walking around the large Castle park before getting on the subway to get to Daigoji-temple where we could find the most famous Cherry blossoms from Hideyoshi era in later 16th century.

The temperature was rising to 70F's (or some 25C) and we felt even the beginning of summer!

After lunch in Daigoji-temple area, we visited the Phoenix Pavilion which is famous for the design of Japanese 10 yen coin.

On the way back from the Phoenix Pavilion, we got off the subway and walk through Keage area where Shingo lives.

Cherry blossoms in Nijo Station was also in full bloom and we walked a lot today!
