Walking from Kiyomizu through Yasaka in slight rain!

Slight raining weather welcomed the first full day of our trip.  It wasn't too much raining, we followed the original schedule and began climbing the hill to Kiyomizu dera-temple to overlook the Kyoto city from the famous Kiyomizu cypress stage and observe cherry blossoms in Jishu Shrine in it.

From Kiyomizu, we walk through Sannen-zaka and Ninen-zaka to get to the Maruyama Park to see THE Cherry Blossoms in half bloom.  After enjoying lunch after visiting Yasaka Shrine, we were headed to Sanjusangen-do temple to greet 1001 statues of Buddha for mercy.

Late afternoon through night was spent in the central city area, Shijo Kawaramachi to energize for the next day!
