We went to see the bamboo forest in Arashiyama, Kyoto and went through some gardens and shrines along the way.
There was a sign that pointed to monkeys, but we didn’t go see them. I’m also not too sure about Japan’s law on contact with primates either. I know that the Greater Vancouver Zoo maintains a strict “no contact with primates” protocol because they’re part of CAZA, but not sure if it’s the same with Japan.
There were a lot of tourists in the bamboo forest. It was hard to get a nice picture with no people in it.
We went to the famous Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto. We were too tired to take the long hike up the shrine, so we settled for the shorter roundabout route.
We walked around a lot and ended the day on the parfait (read: perfect) note with some yummy dessert.
