I took a lot of photos today. The Fushima Inari Shrine had a lot to do with that. If you are in Kyoto this is a must see.
In the afternoon we went to Arashiyama which is the way to get to the bamboo forest. We were hoping to see some monkeys but no such luck. We got their after closing time and so we walked around the free area of the park and thetown and bought some flavored nuts and some spices.
Back at Kyoto Station for dinner, since it seems like we have to go through this station to get anywhere, and there’s plenty to eat here. Had seen some pictures of Okonomiyaki and decided to try it. This isn’t something I was familiar with or had seen in any Japanese restaurant in the US. It is like noodles and egg and gravy all fried up teppanyaki stye in front of you. We tried the standard and the Waraikaki which were both very tasty.
