After grabbing breakfast, we took the train out to Fushimi Inari, where there are a bunch of shrines and gates (tori) up on a hill.
And more Tori.
Funny and really confusing advertisement for coffee found on a vending machine. My brother tells me that the woman is some famous pop star in Japan.
Me at the shrine at the top of the hill.
Mini waterfall-like thing.
After Fushimi Inari, we met up with one of L's friends in Kyoto to go see the Cherry Blossom Dance. This is a traditional dance that is done only once a year (although they do something like four shows per day for a month straight) by the best Maiko (apprentice Geisha) and Geisha/Geiko in Gion (the Geisha section of Osaka).
Besides the costumes, the sets were really impressive (there were a lot more, but I didn't feel like posting twenty photos of sets).
The next morning near the train station, there was some sort of stuff going on:
Some guy dressed in a traditional infantryman uniform.
Kids drumming and some guy doing some sort of dance. (More Youtube footage.) It actually sort of looks like he's at a rave or something like that. After that, it was back off to the airport and then back to Seoul. Much food was consumed, and a very good trip was had.
