Friday, 30°C clouds and sun

A few weeks ago we booked a tour of the old Imperial Palace. Via the website we applied for a ticket and a little later we got a mail with a barcoded permission. There’s only a part of the property that can be visited, mainly the exterior of the buildings and part of the gardens. After the tour we took a bus to the Golden Pavillion of Kinkaku-ji. This temple is famous for it’s golden exterior and the refection in the Kyoko pond. Via the shopping district with it’s covered streets where we had lunch, we made our way to Gion where we booked a photo session as Maiko and Samurai. After this it was time to go to Gion Corner where we went to see a typical Japanese theater performance.
