Phoenix and thousands of Torii gates welcomed us

We went out from the Kyoto city again to get to the Phoenix Pavilion in Uji city which is famous for its tea.  Though Sakura flower did not bloom yet certainly welcomed us.  While walking back to the train station along the Uji river, we saw the official opening day ceremony of Cormorant fishing.

On the way back to the city center we stopped by at the Fushimi Inari Grand Shrine which is famous for its thousands of Torii gates.  We tasted mysterious atmosphere with many many visitors through the Torii gate tunnel.

We had a lunch break in Kawaramachi Sanjo where many students tried to enjoy REAL sushi.  After lunch the city subway took us to the Nijo Castle from which we walked back to the hotel through Shinsen'en.

It was another beautiful day!
