1001 statues welcomed us!

We were welcomed by 1001 images of Buddha of mercy at Sanjusangendo Temple first in the morning.  We got there even before its opening.  Then we took bus to Gojo-zaka from which the Tea Bowl Slope path too us to the Kiyomizu-temple.

After viewing the city's south we left for Maruyama park and Yasaka Shrine via Three-year path and Two-year path though regrettably the most famous cherry blossoms were not bloom yet.

After lunch in Gion area, we went to Heian Jingu Shrine and its garden before visiting Kyoto Handicraft Center where they took a couple of hours to explorer souvenir shopping.

The night show of Japanese tradition performance  at Gion Corner was fabulous.
